Access to Higher Education

The Access to Higher Education Diploma is a Level 3 qualification designed to give people the knowledge and skills needed to study in higher education.

The qualification aims to:

  • prepare adults who do not have the necessary qualifications to enter university;
  • offer a general introduction to study skills and key areas of knowledge within the subject(s) taken;
  • help people to become independent, self-directed learners and prepare them for the demands of undergraduate study;
  • offer a positive and supportive learning experience where people can build their skills and confidence.

OCN London has developed Access to HE Diplomas in over 40 subjects. These Diplomas are delivered at further education colleges, adult and community education centres and private training centres approved by OCN London to offer the qualification. Every year thousands of learners progress from their Access to HE Diploma to higher education.
