Still not too late to apply - Social Sciences
7th September 2021
Have you changed your mind about going to university? Why not kick start your degree on a different pathway. Our Social Sciences: Associate Degree (HNC), is run in partnership with Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh This means that although you enrol fully as a QMU student you spend the first year of your degree at Newbattle Abbey College.
So, what are the benefits for choosing this route:
🟡 Smaller class sizes that at university.
🟡 You will be in a class where there are other Associate Students, so you will be able to make friends with the people who you will study with for four years.
🟡We will help you prepare for the more independent learning style and the academic standards required at university.
🟡 We will arrange visits to the university campus, workshops on academic skills, and guest lectures – this will ensure you are prepared for your transition to 2nd year at Queen Margaret.
And a wee reminder that this course is:
🟢 SAAS funded.
🟢 We offer this course on a residential basis with your meals included.
🟢 Once you successfully complete this course, you can progress to Year 2 in certain undergraduate programmes at QMU.
