2+2 Degree Pathway

If you don't have formal qualifications and wish to study locally for a university degree, this pathway is for you. The first two years are taught at a local college enabling you to gain the skills and confidence to prepare you for the final two years here at the University. You are a Warwick student from the start of the degree, and whilst most teaching takes place at our partner colleges, you will attend classes and other activities at the University during the first two years.

All our students start on the BA (Hons) Social Studies but you are able to transfer to the more specialised BA (Hons) Health and Social Policy in your third year if you wish.
