Pathways to degrees celebrates first graduating students
15 July 2015
An innovative scheme offering people a way back into education celebrate its first group of graduates this week.
The Exploring the Past pathway is one of nine pathways available from Cardiff University's Continuing and Professional Education department.
It has been developed to help adults realise their ambition to study history, ancient history, archaeology or religion at degree level.
The Exploring the Past pathway is taught and assessed in similar ways to first year undergraduate degree courses and students do not need previous qualifications to enrol. Students study at the University part-time for one year, which qualifies them for an interview onto either a part-time or full-time degree delivered by the School of History, Archaeology and Religion.
Professor Kevin Passmore, Professor of History, School of History, Archaeology and Religion said: "Everyone in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion is extremely proud of the Exploring the Past pathway.
"It combines exciting research-led teaching with a welcoming and supportive environment which enables adults from all walks of life to study with us.
"Every lecturer wants adult learners on their modules. Exploring the Past has been fantastic at recruiting students who are an asset to our degrees."
