Access to Higher Education
Access to Higher Education Diploma courses are one-year programmes specifically designed to prepare you to study for a degree. They are designed for people who may have left school without the usual qualifications, such as A-levels.
Access courses are a great alternative to a Year Zero course. Unlike these courses, your loan will be written- off when you progress to a higher education course.
Many of our Access to Higher Education students go on to succeed at university and beyond - many pursuing careers and transforming their lives in ways that they had never thought possible.
Our Access students come from all walks of life and all ages, but they have one thing in common, they are all people like you; looking to focus on their studies in order to realise their ambitions.
Finance and Loans: You may be entitled to an Advanced Learning Loan (open to adults aged 19+) to help with costs. Click here to find out more.
