Access to Higher Education Diploma (Video)

The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma prepares students for higher education level study.

An Access to HE Diploma is for people who might have been out of education for some time and for those who left school with too few qualifications to be able to go straight to university.

Access to HE courses provide a good foundation in the knowledge and skills required for studying at university level, so that students are confident and well prepared when they go on to higher education after the Access to HE course.

Some courses have a specific subject focus, such as Access to HE Diploma (Law), Access to HE Diploma (Nursing), or Access to HE Diploma (Business Studies). Others provide a preparation across a wider range of subjects, such as Access to HE Diploma (Social Studies) or Access to HE Diploma (Combined Sciences). Diplomas with more general titles often have a range of options available, so students on the same course are able to choose different options to suit their individual interests, plans for further study, or career ambitions.

Most Access to HE Diplomas can be completed in a year. Access courses  and there are courses offered at further education colleges in your local area.

Some Access to HE courses are offered in the evenings or by distance learning.
