A free short course about returning to higher education

Connect is a short course designed to help adults to get back into education. This free course gives information on how to progress onto a degree and the skills you will need to succeed. It’s a useful way for you to explore the idea of higher education, and boost your confidence.

It’s firmed up my decision to return to education and work towards becoming a social worker. Very informative course, great workshop, a good kickstart for me to enter HE and has given me confidence that I can do this.
