Fastrack explained

Fastrack is an intensive preparation programme, designed to prepare you for Higher Education. The programme is suitable for applicants to Edge Hill University who do not have the required qualifications to enter degree level study.

Fastrack is validated at level 3, which means the programme is the same level of study as A Levels. The course will prepare you in terms of both subject knowledge and the academic skills required to study in higher education.

Students are required to complete all aspects of Fastrack before they can progress on to a relevant degree programme at the University. Students are also required to demonstrate an aptitude for study at degree level.

Some subject areas will have other conditions of progression which will also need to be met. Further details of which can be found below:
