Are you looking to study a degree but do not have the required entry qualifications?

Our one-year Access to Higher Education (HE) courses can help to prepare you for university study. They are designed for those who have some life experience outside of formal education but do not yet have the qualifications to gain entry to university level study.

Each diploma, tailored to a specific subject area, is a popular route by which many enter university and go on to enjoy successful careers.

Whether you have just started to plan your future career, or are looking for a change in career direction, Access to Higher Education is the ideal first step to get you started.

We offer a number of pathways including:

If eligible, you may be able to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the fees for an Access to HE course. Should you go on to successfully complete a degree, you don’t have to repay the outstanding loan for the Access to HE course. For more information, visit our dedicated page here.
