Westminster Kingsway College has launched a new Access to Higher Education programme in Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at its new King’s Cross Centre in central London. The College is already a leading provider of Access to Higher Education courses in London as well as specialising in courses for Pharmacy Technicians in conjunction with the University of London’s School of Pharmacy and Birkbeck College.
The new Access programme in Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences will be focussing on those who are looking to progress to university courses in Pharmacy or Biomedical Sciences and the course has been developed in partnership with the School of Pharmacy at the University of London. Candidates will need to have some aptitude for science and maths already and it is preferable that they have been working in a medical or healthcare environment but they may have been out of education for some time or be looking to change their career.
The one year Access programme will offer modules in Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Study Skills. Specialist modules in Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences include the action and uses of drugs; defence against disease; training in laboratory skills and health-related calculations. These modules will prepare learners to apply for university programmes in Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences.
Candidates will study in brand new science facilities at the College’s King’s Cross Centre. The learning environment provides facilities through which learners will develop the skills and knowledge they need for their next step and the aspirations to ensure it is a rewarding one. Every classroom is bright, stimulating and equipped with e-learning facilities.
Blair Malcolm, Head of Access to Higher Education at Westminster Kingsway College said: “The new Access to Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences course is unique in London and will provide candidates with a real opportunity to study and progress into higher education. We are very excited about this new programme and will be building on the successes of our existing Access to HE programmes where we have a near 100% achievement rate with many learners progressing onto universities all over the UK.”
The new Access to Higher Education programme in Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences will begin in September 2009 and candidates are encouraged to apply early as places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
