Via the Cardiff Metropolitan University

Cardiff Metropolitan University Widening Access Team aims to ensure that people of any age, background or ethnic group are given a fair and equal opportunity to study here in a supported manner. We are committed to ensuring that everyone with the determination, skills and desire to access Higher Education should be able to do so. ​

If you are a mature student, adult learner or interested in learning in your community and want to try a short course for progression into the university, then we can help. We work with communities offering opportunities to non-traditional learners which are accessible​ and flexible. The courses on offer are part-time, bite sized learning programmes designed to widen participation to higher education.

It is intended to be enjoyable, fun and motivating! It is also an excellent introduction to the 10 credit Level 3 Reflexology module, and Anatomy and Physiology module run in the community.​​​​
