People, Work & Society – Starting October 2015
Do you know learners who are ready to progress with their learning?
The Open University in Wales is working with North and Mid Wales Reaching Wider, Glyndwr, Bangor, and Aberystwyth Universities to pilot a flexible access to Higher Education project.
The project offers students living in North and Mid Wales Communities First (and other priority) wards a free social science access course with the OU “People, work and society”. After this, students will be guaranteed an interview to progress their studies at either Glyndwr, Bangor or Aberystwyth Universities or they could continue their studies with the OU.
