Your stepping stone to University

Access to Higher Education (HE) diplomas are an exciting alternative to A Levels and BTEC qualifications for adult learners. Studied across 1 year, all of our courses have been developed by Universities to ensure you gain the skills and requirements needed for degree level study.

Access diplomas are the perfect choice for mature learners who have been out of education for a while. Our courses offer flexible and family friendly hours to fit around busy lifestyles.
