Short course to prepare you for academic success

We know that the disruption to your learning this year has had a significant impact, and we are dedicated to supporting you to success in your future learning. To help you prepare for university, we’ve developed an online, six-week course called the Pre-Undergraduate Short Course. It’s completely optional but if you complete it and enrol with us this year, you’ll be eligible for a £500 bursary.
