Fast Track Pathway to Nursing

Want to get into nursing but don’t know how?

Interested in a career in nursing but don’t have the qualifications?

We can get you ready for degree study by September 2022!



We are offering a fast track program that will allow you to study Access to Nursing this September. With our blended learning approach, you will be able to fit studying around other commitments, such as work or home life, whilst gaining the skills needed to progress to degree-level study. You will have an induction and then you will have the materials you need to study online. 

Our experienced tutors will support you throughout the course and will give you the confidence you need to successfully complete it. The program lasts less than 12 weeks and you’ll be expected to do 12 hours of studying per week.

This program is ideal for those in the healthcare sector that want to take the next step to become a nurse, or those considering getting into the sector and start a career in nursing?

Equipment & additional costs

*This course is funded, meaning it is free to most learners.
You will need access to the internet via a computer or laptop. Let us know if you require extra support or arrangements to study on the course.

Entry requirements

There are no qualification requirements needed to join this course. All learners need to be aged 19 or over.


After you complete the fast track program, you will be ready to join the Level 3 Access to Nursing course. This can be studied for one year, allowing you to apply through UCAS to study for a degree in September/October 2022. Alternatively, you can study Access to Nursing as a part-time course, spanning two years. If you choose this option, you will be looking at a September/October 2023 start date for degree study.

As well as giving you the skills needed for academic study, as part of our access course, you will be guided through the university admissions process. We will guide you to look at places to study, career paths and help you to write a personal statement.
