What is Access to HE?

The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma is a course for those who want to go to university but do not have the formal qualifications needed. It is also for those who wish to change careers or for those who want to improve their qualifications, skills and confidence.

It is expected that those wishing to complete an Access to HE Diploma will have substantial experience of life outside of formal education, gained since completing compulsory schooling. The Access to HE Diploma is nationally recognised and widely accepted by universities, with many encouraging applications from Access to HE students.

Assessment

You will be assessed on the Access to HE Diploma through a combination of written assignments, oral presentations, practical assessment and examinations.
