Adult learners

The hardest step for adult learners is making the decision to return to study. But once this decision is made, you will find yourself learning alongside people just like you, on a course designed for adults. 

Entry onto many courses requires no formal qualifications, so whatever your past achievements we are sure to have a course to suit you. You also have the option to study flexible-learning qualifications with the College too.

Access Courses

If you'd like to go to University but don't have formal qualifications such as GCSEs and A-Levels to meet entry criteria, an Access course can help. The emphasis is placed on improving the oral, written and study skills of those who are returning to the education system. You will be able to progress onto careers such as Teaching, Social Work, Pharmacy, Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Law, Occupational Therapy, Business, and Computer Technology to name but a few.

If you receive Jobseekers Allowance, you may be able to study without conflicting with the terms of your benefits. Please check with your local Benefits Office to make sure.

You can contact the Course Information Line on 01634 402020 or email for more information on Access courses.

Study programmes

Students who are aged 19 or over on the 31 August 2018 who apply for a 16-18 full-time study programme will be redirected to an alternative 19+ full-time, part-time or evening programme that will more suit their needs. If in exceptional circumstances this is not possible, all support will be given by the MidKent College Careers Advisers to help individuals find a course at a local provider where possible. This is in line with the College's safeguarding expectations.
