Pathway to Social Science

“Yes, this course has definitely encouraged me to study towards a qualification. The feeling of getting education is priceless. It makes me feel like I’m coming out of the darkness – and walking into light.”

You will study part-time for one year on the pathways and successful students will then transfer onto their degree at Cardiff School of Social Sciences. Our current Pathway to Social Science students are in the best place to inspire you to enrol! Read the testimonials provided by students just finishing this year’s pathway.

“I felt like I needed to do something for myself and I have always wanted to work towards a degree. Just go for it! I totally surprised myself at how much I could do despite not studying for many years” – Deborah Johnson

 “Cardiff University has been a great place to study. There have been levels of support in place and being a working mum tutors have been very supportive, approachable and appreciative of our busy lives” – Wendy Harris

I couldn’t believe you didn’t need any qualifications to do it! It has been brilliant! I have made lots of new friends and the subjects have been very interesting” – Alysha Sammut
