Scottish Wider Access Programmes, also known as SWAP courses, are for adults who have few or no formal qualifications and who have been out of full-time education for at least three years (five years if you have Highers or an HN). SWAP Access courses provide an alternative route into Higher Education and are designed to give adult learners intensive academic preparation as well as the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence required to study at Higher Education level.
These courses are full-time for one year and prepare you for entry into HNC/HND or degree level study through recognised progression routes at colleges or universities in Scotland.
You can find more information about SWAP on their website.
