CU Coventry (Coventry)
1 year full-time
Study level: Access courses
The Business Access course sets out to offer adult learners a coherent, integrated and supported year of study in business, law, economics and accounts units, through which you will gain the knowledge, awareness, skills and confidence necessary for successful entry into a relevant undergraduate degree.
Access programmes are designed for students who have not had the opportunity to access higher education via traditional routes. This course will give you the opportunity to attain some of the tools you will need to complete one of our degree programmes as well as some subject specific knowledge. We will prepare you in the fundamentals of study skills, numeracy and literacy.
Attendance is usually required from Monday to Thursday from 9:30am-2pm.
The fee for 2022-23 is £3,022. If you're aged 19+ funding is available through the Advanced Learners Loan.
The tuition fee for the course that is stated on the course webpage and in the prospectus for the first year of study will apply. We will review our tuition fees each year. For UK and EU students, if Parliament permit an increase in tuition fees, we may increase fees for each subsequent year of study in line with any such changes. Note that any increase is expected to be in line with inflation. Following the UK’s exit from the European Union, EU students should be aware that there may be a change to UK laws following the UK’s exit, this may change their student status, their eligibility to study part time, and/or their eligibility for student finance. We will act in accordance with the UK’s laws in force in relation to student tuition fees and finance from time to time.
