What I would highlight: the lecturers are all (now, see below) really good, they are approachable, suportive and clear in their delivery and expectations of you. The venue (graig campus in Llanelli) is fairly modern and there are plenty of facilities for such a small campus This includes starbucks, costa, a gym, a cash machine, study areas, a library and plenty of computers.
What could be improved: There was an issue with one of the lecturers not been available due to an accident and we were chopping and changing, having three lecturers in the first seven weeks It was sorted eventually though.

Course programme

Access to Science is ideal for those who wish to study Mathematics or science based subjects at university level eg. Bio-chemistry, Physiotherapy, Physics and Maths. Achieving the Access Diploma is not based upon passing examinations and the course is assessed through a variety of assignments, taking the form of essays, presentations and reports. The course benefits from a range of interesting topic areas taught by well qualified, supportive and enthusiastic staff. In addition to these, separate lessons are timetabled to build the skills of communication and numeracy up to the required standard for university entry.

Students who successfully complete the course would be eligible to apply for HND or Degree courses in a science related subject area.

Additional information

Although achieving the Diploma itself is not dependent on passing an examination, each module will be assessed through a combination of assignments, seminars, presentations, formal essay, tests and exams, and group discussion.
