Access to Higher Education

Access to Higher Education (HE) diplomas are courses that prepare you to study for a degree. They are designed for people who may have left school without the usual qualifications, such as A-levels.

Many Access to HE students go on to succeed at university and beyond - many pursuing new careers and seeing changes in their lives that they had never thought possible.

Students study in a supportive environment with other adult students. We ease students back into education by building on existing experiences.Open College Network West Midlands

The Diplomas are validated by Open College Network London and West Midland and are recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.
