About our Access to Higher Education Courses
If you want to go into Higher Education (HE) and study for a degree, but feel held back by a lack of qualifications or confidence, the Access to Higher Education course could be just what you need.
It allows people with a mature attitude towards learning, who may not have reached their full potential at school, or lack traditional qualifications, to return to education and succeed. The course is designed to build confidence, develop academic skills and fully prepare you for university.
The Access Diploma is credit based and validated by awarding bodies such as CERTA. To successfully complete, students must obtain 60 credits at Level 3. These include 45 credits which are graded pass, merit or distinction and 15 Level 3 credits which are ungraded. The Access Diploma offers a choice of three pathways. You will need to choose a pathway that is relevant to the Higher Education subject area that you wish to pursue.
The pathways currently include:
- Policing and the Social Justice System
Units from each pathway are chosen that are relevant to individual career goals. All pathways include units of study skills.
