Access to Higher Education

The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma is a qualification that prepares adults aged 19 or over to study at university level.

The Access to Higher Education Diploma is designed for people who have been out of education for some time or for those who left school without the qualifications needed to go straight to university.

It provides you with a good foundation and the skills needed for studying at university level, so you can be confident and well prepared when you go on to study a degree.

It is widely recognised by UK universities, and many actively encourage applications from Access to HE students. More than 20,000 Access to HE students apply for a degree each year and go on to study a wide range of subjects.

Our Access courses are awarded by Gateway Qualifications. View our case study.
