All access courses have to be quite similar - for you i'd say try distance learning.
I'm sure Dappy can tell you costs etc.
You could also do some courses with the OU, Flopsy knows about these too!
I wrote a article just a couple of days ago for using the DLC (the link Delilah posted) as a route into midwifery - http://www.midwiferyonline.co.uk/content/157-Using-the-Distance-Learning-Centre-%28DLC%29-as-a-route-to-Midwifery-Training
That's update with the current prices etc.
I am an EX DLC student so if you have any questions specifically regarding them just ask and I'll help the best I can.

I haven't done it personally but I think there is a couple on here who have.
What is it you specifically want to know?

I did an access course at college and also some courses with the open uni (to keep the grey matter active!) I would say contact yor chosen uni as they will be able to tell you which is your best route. I never did K101 but did do SK277 which I found really interesting. Which Access course you do would depend on what time you have available - I went to college 2 evenings a week over 2 years as I felt I needed college support returning to study, but if working or childcare may prove difficult distance learning may be a better option. x

I did K100 in the olden days!! It is now K101, there are studes on here that have done it recently..... still a very good course.
