SEARCH FOR A CAREER

An Access to Higher Education Diploma will help you develop the study skills and academic knowledge to progress onto a degree level course. It might be for you if:

  • you don’t have traditional qualifications like A levels
  • you have possibly been out of education for a while
  • you would eventually like to study a course at university

Why do an Access Course?

FLEXIBILITY
  • Most courses are designed to fit in with childcare or there are alternative options for study in the evening.
  • Most courses are planned over 3 days per week to allow time for part-time work if needed.
  • All courses take one year.
VARIETY
  • Study a broad range of courses at either Cambridge (CC) or Huntingdon (HC) campuses.
  • Around 40,000 people a year in the UK study on Access to Higher Education courses to allow them to progress to further study. A diverse range of people study on Access and there is no upper age limit.
RECOGNITION
  • Widely accepted by UK universities.
  • A lot of universities actively seek applications from Access learners due to their broader academic study skills and life experiences.
OPPORTUNITIES
  • Develop your skills, subject knowledge, and confidence in a supportive and encouraging environment.
  • Gain a chance to change your career or progress at work.
  • Get into university.

Worried about the costs?

  • Aged 19-23 and don’t have full Level 3 qualifications such as A levels: NO COST.
  • Aged 19-23 and have prior qualifications or over 24: you can take out an Adult learner loan – this is written off once you get your degree.
  • Thinking of studying a nursing degree at HE? You may be eligible for extra financial support with an annual payment of £5000 from Sept 2020. This money will not need to be paid back.(www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/nhsbursary#ENGLAND_nmw_ahp)
  • Thinking of studying a Social Work degree at HE? You may be eligible for a bursary that is not dependent on household income – www.gov.uk/socialwork-bursaries
