In just nine months (September – June) you could be qualified to enter university and progress to that exciting new career.

The Access to Higher Education Diploma is nationally recognised as a university entrance qualification and alternative to GCE A levels. The programme is designed for adult learners who come from a broad age range and varied backgrounds.

As with all Level 3 courses at The College the usual entry criteria is 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) but entry to the Access course can be based on evidence of life experiences, aptitude and commitment. All entrants must have GCSE English and Mathematics at grade C on entry.

Students wishing to study any Sciences at University now have the option of taking the science pathways which includes Chemistry, Environmental Studies and Mathematics (students must have a GCSE in Science).
