If you are hoping to go to university but do not have a Level 3 qualification, we offer Access to Higher Education Diploma courses in the following areas: 
  • Business
  • Computing
  • Health and Human Sciences.

Courses are designed, in particular, for people 19 or over and who have been out of education for some time, especially those who left school with too few qualifications to be able to go straight to university. Access to HE Diploma 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.

Our Access to Higher Education Diploma courses are validated by:

I love that my course involves a lot of practical work to develop my skills for university and future career preparation. The teachers are very helpful and provide quality teaching and the Student Support and Careers Team have been very helpful in dealing with student concerns and problems. I am thoroughly enjoying and satisfied with my course and I would really recommend Uxbridge College to start your future.

I have found Uxbridge College to be great, as the way everything is taught with real world examples and explanations really helps in understanding completely new topics. The facilities for my course are great and staff are constantly offering us resources that we didn’t even know about! My time here has been great as my course is extremely interesting and was a lot more than I expected. It really helped open my eyes to the field of computing, all while receiving an outstanding education.
