Access to Success Route

Are you interested in university study but not sure whether you have the study skills or the funds to have a try? You may want to consider the Access to Success Route, The Open University's unique and low-cost entry route to further study. If you live in England and have an annual household income of less than 25,000, you may be successful in gaining a place. Visit www.open.ac.uk/learning/access or speak to AFF’s Employment, Training, Allowances and Money Specialist on 0779 9045955 or email etam@aff.org.uk.
