The Access to Higher Education Diploma course is for adults (19+) returning to education. This pathway is perfect for those aiming to pursue new careers in a multitude of sectors, including education (primary, secondary, and post-compulsory), journalism, the heritage sector, the civil service, and many more areas. Students study four distinct subjects: Literary Studies, History, Sociology, and Study Skills. Over the course of the year learners will develop the skills necessary to progress onto university study. Past students have progressed to a multitude of different degrees, ranging from History, English Literature, and Social Sciences, as well as more specialist pathways (for example Theatre Studies, Events Management, and Korean Studies).
• It is desirable if you have a clear idea of the university course that you would like to apply for.
• Please check your HE institute choice/s for their entry requirements.
• Both maths and English GCSE grade 4 (or equivalent) are required for all Access Diplomas (exceptions will be considered if you do not need this criteria in order to progress to your selected Higher Education Institute).

"The course was local and exactly what I needed to further my career. When I opened my results I felt so happy and very proud of myself, gaining a first was a result of both the hard work and the guidance I received from the course team. I can now fulfil my ambition of opening a kindergarten abroad."Ben Steadman
