Access to HE Diploma in Health - Distance Learning

Opening the door to a professional career in health

Do you want to work or progress in the healthcare profession but struggle to commit to a fixed timetable?

Our Access to HE Health Distance learning pathway is an exciting, innovative programme specifically designed by our expert Access tutors for adult learners who may have been out of study for a while.

If you know that now it is the right time for you to return to study, then we can certainly help to open the door to a future life changing career.


This course is delivered in a 100% distance format and as such is flexible around work or other commitments. The course is run by experienced Access tutors who will be on hand to support you with your studies and ensure that you remain on track to move on to the undergraduate course of your choice.

Previous students have gone on to study a wide range of courses at university including Adult Nursing, Mental Health Nursing, Midwifery and Occupational Therapy.

The course material is expertly designed to be engaging, with digitised content and a step by step delivery of content. The material is all directly linked to the requirements of the qualification and in turn to your future knowledge base at university.

The Access to Health Distance Learning Diploma is an independent study programme, allowing you to work at your own pace with 1-to-1 support and guidance. 

This fully established course is great for those who need to learn via a more flexible method of delivery, are self-motivated and are able to work independently. Studying on an Access pathway is challenging so you will need to be fully committed to your studies and be confident that now is the right time for you to commit to this life changing course.

We offer consistent, bespoke 1-to-1 support with your independent studies via Skype, telephone, and email individual guidance; you may be distant, but you are certainly not alone.

“I honestly would be doomed without the flexibility that the course offers as I need to work full-time to support myself and I would never want to give up horse riding! The course can be studied at home, in my own time and at my own pace so I can balance all of my commitments. It is intense but I love it!”
