Abstract

An investigation was carried out on approaches to learning among students completing Access courses at nine colleges of further education. The factor structure of their responses to a short form of the Approaches to Studying Inventory was qualitatively different from that obtained in a previous investigation of conventional university students. These results suggest that Access courses might inculcate an educational culture that is inconsistent with the dominant culture within mainstream higher education.
