Gateway to HE

Our FREE part-time Gateway to HE offers you the chance to see if study is for you.

We teach the classes in an informal style, allowing you to settle back into study. The course is designed to fit around work and family commitments, whilst developing your skills, knowledge, and confidence.


You will meet and work with others who will be embarking on a similar journey to your own, in an environment designed for adult learners. The course is designed for adults living in the local area and we don't ask for previous qualifications, and successful completion guarantees you a place on the University of Warwick’s part-time BA (Hons) Social Studies Degree
