What is Access to HE?

Who we helpLearnersWhat is Access to HE?

Our Access to Higher Education Diploma courses are designed to provide the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to progress to a degree or diploma course in higher education. These courses enable adults who do not have the necessary level 3 qualifications (such as ‘A’ levels) required to enter higher education to acquire the Access to HE Diploma, which is equivalent in standard to these qualifications.

The information below is aimed at answering some questions that you may have if you're interested in studying for an Access to HE Diploma. 

You can find out which providers offer the Access to HE Diploma by visiting our Access to HE Course Directory. If you are interested in reading the stories of learners who have had their lives transformed by the Access to HE Diploma, then visit our Case Studies page.
