The Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) supports access to higher education for adult learners. SWAP access programmes run at colleges across Scotland and are a proven route into hundreds of degree courses at partner universities. Our 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. This year at SWAP East, we have launched a mentoring scheme. This pairs former SWAP East students with current and potential SWAP East students. The mentors have recently completed a SWAP East access programme and are now studying at university. Their role is to encourage, guide and support their mentees on their journey towards university. For the mentees, this is an excellent opportunity to meet someone who has been where they are now and learn from their experience. Current and former SWAP East students who are interested in the scheme should get in touch. Likewise anyone who is preparing to do, or considering doing, a SWAP East access programme at some point in the future.
