Is it time to SWAP?

If you’ve always wanted to study for a degree but haven’t found a way to get the qualifications you need, we can help you find a way forward.

The Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) is a partnership between colleges and universities to support access to higher education for adults. SWAP full-time, one year access programmes are specifically designed for adults who are returning to education after a gap, and who have the motivation and ability to go on to study at university or for a higher-level qualification at college. Over 35,000 students have taken part since it began in 1988. At Dundee and Angus College, there are many SWAP programmes available to help those with few or no qualifications find a route into university.
