If you have the ability to study for a degree but lack the necessary qualifications and confidence, our Fastrack programme could help you to enhance your study skills and subject knowledge and progress onto higher level study.

Course Information

FastrackFastrack courses are designed to take the fear out of higher education. They provide intensive training in essential academic skills such as note-taking, essay writing and exam techniques, in addition to an introduction to IT.

The programmes are free of charge, with the exception of paying for Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Disclosure where required (selected subjects only). The cost of this is currently £50.

Successful completion of a Fastrack course will demonstrate that you are ready to study a particular subject with us, in lieu of achieving the UCAS Tariff points in the entry criteria for the relevant programme. You will be well placed to join a corresponding Edge Hill University degree the following academic year although you should be aware that additional entry requirements may apply and the availability of specific programmes cannot be guaranteed.
