The Access to HE Diploma is intended to prepare people without traditional entry qualifications for degree level study at university.
It may also be used by people wishing to make a career change or who have been out of formal education for a significant time in order to gain the skills and confidence required for direct progression to employment or further study.
The Access to HE Diploma is regulated by QAA and widely recognised as a progression route by universities across the UK.
All students produce a portfolio of work built throughout the course and formal assessments throughout the year, which may include (dependent on subjects chosen): essays, presentations, coursework, experiment reports, and timed in-class exercises.
The course prepares you for university and is recognised by all UK universities.
Subjects include Sociology, Psychology and Human Biology, as well as many others outside the healthcare field such as Criminology, preparing you for entry onto a degree of your choice.
You need to be over 19 and have a desire to study at university level.
You will need GCSE English or maths for this Nursing & Health pathway (or equivalent qualification translated by NARIC).
You will be invited to an interview where any entry criteria for your chosen pathway will be discussed with you on an individual basis.
