What is SWAP?

Access to Nursing is part of the Scottish Widening Access Programme (SWAP) and is specifically for people who have been out of formal education for at least 3 years (see Entry Requirements for more details). It prepares adult returners for entry into Higher Education and can lead to a place at college or university.
