Taste of Higher Education Programme

  • Do you want a Taste of Higher Education without committing to a degree programme?
  • Are you interested in degree-level study, but don’t yet know which subject(s) you want to focus on?
  • Do you want to experience what it is like to study at university with the benefit of extensive study skills provision?
  • If so, then the Taste of Higher Education programme could be for you.

What is on offer?

  • A choice of one or two subject modules at Level 4, from our Part-time BA Degree in Humanities programme.
  • Extensive study skills provision, including general study skills, academic writing skills, research skills and study.
  • Impartial careers and educational guidance.

Time commitment will depend on the subject module(s) you choose:

  • Studying one 10 credit module from the Part-time BA Degree in Humanities programme will mean you need to attend a two hour lecture, once a week (October 2016 – December 2016 for 10 weeks).
  • Studying one 20 credit module from the Part-time BA Degree in Humanities programme will mean you need to attend a two hour lecture, once a week (October 2016 – March 2017 for 20 weeks).
  • If you decide to choose two subject modules, you will need to attend both lectures for two hours twice a week.

Outcomes:

  • If you meet the assessment criteria (i.e. attend 70% of classes and achieve over 40% in your written work) you will gain credits at HE Level 4.
  • With satisfactory marks, you can use these credits to study further in Higher Education (HE) at Swansea University, DACE.
