Your future, your way

Higher education is closer than you think

Higher education is closer than you think

Many think that university is only for high-flying A-Level students or teenagers with rich parents. Wrong.

Here at Glyndŵr University, we’re open to all.

This means that, whatever your background, age, gender or disability, we offer support and advice to help you succeed here.

We now offer more options and flexibility in how you study for your degree, so whether you left school with no qualifications or have been working for some time, there is still a chance to boost your learning.

Grants, bursaries and a discretionary hardship fund are available if you are from a disadvantaged background or community, if you are in care or if you have a disability. Make sure you check whether you’re eligible.

You don’t have to study for a degree all in one go!

Qualifications are more flexible than ever with options to do short courses or study part-time. This means you can fit education around your budget and time commitments. It also helps you build a course that’s suited exactly to your needs.  Part-time students may also be able to have their tuition fees paid under the Funding Council’s Fee Waiver Scheme, click here to find out more.

There is also the option to study some subjects or modules through the medium of Welsh.

Will I need to leave home?

Studying at university doesn’t always involve living on campus and studying full-time. Many of our courses are delivered in partnership with colleges across the region including Deeside and Yale Colleges and Colegs Menai, Llandrillo and Powys. This means that you may be able to study for a Glyndŵr University degree at your local college, or at least study for part of your degree, which you can top up on a degree course on one of our campuses.

Will I get in to university?

A wide range of qualifications can lead you on to a degree course – not just A-Levels. Whether you left school with no GCSEs or have been working for a long time, there’s sure to be an option for you.

We offer full and part-time HNCs, HNDs, and foundation degrees, and can help provide information on Access to HE courses offered through our partners in further education. If you’re in full-time work, there’s the option do work-based learning, a short course, or a series of modules leading to a degree. Click here to request a prospectus.

You need little or no qualifications to get onto an Access to HE course. Foundation degrees ask for credits equivalent to one A-Level. And work experience counts as credits towards courses. It’s much easier than you think. Why not come to an event, take a look around the campus or see when we’re in your area to find out more?
