Immediate entry to the one-year Level 3 Access to HE Diploma offers students who have already attained sufficient GCSE qualifications the quickest route to university. Usually this means students must have attained 4 GCSEs grade A-C/9-4, including English and Maths. Science is usually required for health related courses.
Our humanities pathways offer students a route into a variety of Higher Education courses and careers. Both pathways are suitable for students who may be undecided on their future career but who nevertheless may wish to undertake a single or joint honours degree in a specific humanities subject, such as Psychology, History or English.
The humanities pathway is suitable for those wishing to pursue a career in teaching, Local Government and other similar professions whereas the public services and allied professions pathway prepares students for careers in social work, law, probation, counselling, psychology and related fields.
The Access programme requires attendance for 14 hours a week over 34 weeks. Level 3 students can, in some cases, combine evening with daytime study depending on their chosen pathway.
A work placement may be required for your course. If this is the case, the College will support you in completing a DBS application.
The Access to HE Diploma offers students a way to gain the qualifications needed to enter Higher Education and gain a degree, helping enter their chosen career.
