Access to Higher Education



Access to Higher Education Diplomas are for anyone who is considering going to university but doesn’t have the qualifications they need.

Completion of these courses enables progression to study at degree level. Many of our students go on to study at Britain’s most prestigious universities. 

We also run Higher Education courses in a range of subjects. These can be a more affordable option than university, and we have financial support options for some students.

Our Higher Education provision has successfully achieved the UK standards set by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). Read the QAA’s full report here.

If you are over 18, you can apply for a loan to cover your tuition fees. If you progress to complete a degree course, you do not have to repay the loan. For more information on 19+ Adult Learning Loan visit the adult learner loan page.
