Access to Higher Education - 1-year course
The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma is a qualification which prepares students for study at university. It is designed for people who would like to study in HE but who left school without the usual qualifications, such as A Levels. To achieve an Access to HE Diploma you need to complete a programme that includes certain units of study in relevant subject areas. You’ll be taught study skills – learning how to approach study and the different techniques needed to be a successful student. The package of units is designed to ensure that you’re thoroughly equipped for studying at university. For each unit successfully completed, you’ll earn credits that build towards the 60 credits that are required to complete the course.
Many Access to HE students go on to succeed at university and beyond, with a large number pursuing new careers and seeing changes in their lives that they had never thought possible. Careers students move onto include nursing, midwifery, teaching and a wide range of other careers.
