Why take this course?

This exciting new programme has been developed by North East Scotland College and Robert Gordon University especially for mature students who have been out of education for some time and would like to pursue a career in occupational therapy, physiotherapy, paramedic science or midwifery.

You may be considering a change of career or have worked in a support worker role and now wish to gain qualifications and find routes into the Allied Health Professions (AHP) at degree level. This new Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) has been recognised by RGU as a suitable entry route for these AHP degrees and is an excellent opportunity for those of you with few or no formal qualifications to move on to higher education.
