Access to Higher Education Diploma Courses

The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma prepares students for higher education level study.

It is designed for people who would like to study a higher education course but who may have missed out on earlier educational opportunites and have few or no formal qualifications

Most Access to HE Diplomas can be completed in a year and there are courses offered at further education colleges in your local area.

Some Access to HE courses are offered in the evenings or by distance learning.
