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, successful completion guarantees you a place on the University of Warwick’s part-time BA (Hons) Social Studies Degree.

Our next Gateway to HE programme starts in March 2020.

Student Profiles

"I found the course most enjoyable. I have a keen interest in psychology and was curious to discover more about mindfulness. The psychological theory supported by research and neuroscience, combined with practical strategies and experiences, was quite fascinating. Dean's amazing depth of knowledge and excellent teaching skills further enhanced the experience. The course was not only useful, it was transformational."

Teresa Jones, Mindfulness for Everyday Living

"The certificate provides a fantastic introduction to the theories, tools and techniques involved in effective coaching. The course provides a safe and relaxed environment to learn and practice newly acquired coaching skills with the support and supervision of expert teachers."
