Your Fast-Track Route to University
If you wish to study at university and either lack the necessary entry qualifications or feel you need to develop confidence in your study methods, our Access to Higher Education programmes are for you.
Access to HE programmes provide nationally recognised qualifications that are an alternative to the traditional A-Level route of getting into university and the flexible style of study is ideally suited to adults leading busy lives; for some Access programmes, you can choose day or evening provision, helping you to study alongside your other commitments.
We offer access to HE qualifications in: Business Management, Computing & ICT, Medicine, Nursing & Health Professions, Primary Teaching & Education Professions, Science, Social Sciences and Social Work.
We offer ongoing information, advice and guidance before and throughout your programme. We want your college experience to be as positive and enjoyable as possible, so we are always on hand to provide support, ensuring that you achieve your ambitions and enjoy success on your programme.
Our 21/22 applications will open in March and, for most subjects, start with attending a virtual Access Presentation. We will provide the booking link here when it is ready.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please note, the award of the Access to HE Diploma does not provide guaranteed entry to UK HE programmes – before applying for an Access to HE programme, please speak to your chosen Higher Education provider to ensure that the Access to HE Diploma award meets their entry requirements.
