Access to Higher Education

Access to Higher Education Diploma courses are designed for adults (typically aged 19 and over) who may have been out of full-time education for some time and want to apply to university, but don’t have the required qualifications, or for those that may be considering a career change.


Our one-year Access to Higher Education Diploma courses provide students with a Level 3 nationally recognised qualification. This allows them to progress to a degree programme at university, without the typical entry qualifications you would normally need.

Our courses attract students from a wide rage of ages and backgrounds and are taught in an engaging and holistic way to give our students the knowledge and skills they need to make a career transition and successfully progress to university and the workplace.

You will also be able to progress to other university-level courses including HNCs and HNDs offered at this college.

They are offered in:

  • Business
  • Computing
  • Health & Human Sciences.
