Access to H.E. Diploma

Our Access to Higher Education Diplomas are accredited by the Open College Network London. These courses run for one year and are designed for adults who have previously missed opportunities to gain academic qualifications that enable them to go to university.

You must be 19 years or over at the start of the course and be committed to studying intensively. You will need a GCSE grade C/4 or above in either English or Maths and be prepared to study either English or Maths GCSE alongside the main Access qualification. You must demonstrate an aptitude for this level of study by gaining satisfactory entry test results in literacy, numeracy and a specific written test designed for your chosen curriculum area.

Access to H.E. courses will equip you with high levels of motivation to move on to further study at university level. The College is proud of the many students who have succeeded in winning places at university – some with scholarships. Access to H.E. courses are Level 3 courses and are equivalent to courses such as A-levels or BTEC Level 3 Extended Diplomas.
