Associate students: an alternative way to get a degree QMU has worked with a number of local further education colleges to develop an alternative way to get onto a degree course. Find out about our exciting Associate Student scheme here. Not everyone goes straight from school to university. People take different pathways into education depending on their circumstances. Our Associate Student scheme offers a different route to securing a place on a degree course at QMU. Associate students are fully enrolled as QMU students from day one, but study for the first year at a partner college on a relevant Higher National (HN) course. On successful completion, associate students will have a guaranteed place at QMU to complete their degree. A number of our degrees are available through the Associate Student scheme and are listed in the table here. Courses which are part of the Associate Student scheme: Edinburgh College West Lothian College Newbattle Abbey College BA (Hons) International Hospitality and Tourism Management BA (Hons) PR, Marketing and Events BSc (Hons) Psychology BA (Hons) Events Management BA (Hons) PR and Media BSc (Hons) Psychology and Sociology BA (Hons) Business Management BA (Hons) Events Management BSc (Hons) Public Sociology BSc (Hons) Physical Activity, Health and Wellbeing BSc (Hons) Applied Pharmacology BSc (Hons) Nutrition BSc (Hons) Human Biology BSc (Hons) Psychology and Sociology NB The entry requirements for all of our Associate Student routes are CCC at Higher, or equivalent. 32
