The course, which runs for 8 weeks, is aimed at people who already have a Level 3 qualification or people who have been out of education for while and want to progress on to university but don't have the academic skills and experience that are required at degree-level.
Sandra Murray, Curriculum Leader for Teaching Training said: "Many people whether young or older don't have the academic skills such as essay writing, referencing and researching, that are required for university. Here at NULC, we can provide you with these essential skills, ensuring you progress on to university with all the confidence and skills required to succeed."
The qualification is structured to ensure that students are able to develop skills in writing, reading and research which are core academic requirements of degree-level study.
Sandra added: "I'd encourage anyone who needs to brush up on their academic skills prior to starting a degree-level course to contact me for more information and to enrol on the course."
On completion of the course, students will receive a Staffordshire University Module Certificate worth 15 credits towards their university application.
