There are no formal entry requirements for SWAP programmes. Students must have been out of full-time education for three years or more, at the start of the course. Students who have previous qualifications at SCQF level 6 may also be eligible, provided these qualifications were obtained at least 5 years before starting the course. Special circumstances can be taken into consideration.
On successful completion of this course, students can progress to a range of degrees at universities in Scotland.
Part of the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP), this course offers a unique learning experience to adults with few or no qualifications. If students complete the course successfully, they can progress to higher education.
Currently, our former students are studying a wide range of subjects, including Literature, Politics, Psychology, Social Work and History in universities across Scotland. Many students study on a residential basis, but we also offer non-residential places. Newbattle offers a unique experience to students:
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE IS FULL FOR THE CURRENT ACADEMIC YEAR.
