Commonly asked questions about an access course for Health Care Professionals



I work long hours and shifts; will I be able to manage to study alongside this?


The beauty of the courses here at Access Courses Online is that they are run flexibly to consider work and family commitments. Our current course is delivered at 7.30pm on a Wednesday evening. All sessions are recorded, and you can watch them as many times as you wish and at whatever time suits you. With our online chat, you can drop your course tutor/leader a message at any time of the day, no judgement and we’ll get back to you when we pick it up. We deliver the units within the academic year and therefore it’s spread out over certain periods with periods of rest. Tutorials take place at times that work for you.


I haven’t studied in many years; how will you support me?


The course is designed to meet the needs of all learners, for example, the current cohort needed support with referencing so there was a short video made showing how to use the referencing tool on Microsoft Word. The ethos is, we are here to facilitate and support you, if there’s a skill of area that you need help with, then ask and we’ll make you a resource that will help you or direct you to the resources that will help. Learning with purpose is so much easier than some experiences of school. Treat this as a fresh learning journey and we’ll meet you where you start on this journey.
