      How to join this course

      Students should complete an application form which are available from the college internet site or via our Advice Centres.
      All students are invited to an interview where you will be given an overview of the Access to Higher Education Pathways Programmes offered at NEW College. You will be invited to complete a short written comprehension task which involves reading a passage and answering some questions on it. You will also have a short interview with one of the Access to Higher Education tutors. You should take no longer than 2 hours including the comprehension task.
      All students should also complete an assessment of their skills in literacy and numeracy prior to starting the course. This does not need to be completed at the same time as the interview and students are invited to contact the college learning skills advisors to book in for an Initial Assessment.
