Access to HE Courses

Our Access courses will prepare you for entry to university. A particular feature of our courses is the development of successful learning skills and the ability to work independently.


Access to Higher Education bridges the gap between existing education and what you need to study at degree level. If you do not have the traditionally required GCSEs and A Levels you can use our Access courses to boost your education to the necessary standard to study a degree. You will be able to choose from a range of pathways and will receive support and guidance throughout.

Before joining one of our Access course you are strongly advised to research your chosen progression options and contact universities to establish exact entry criteria for your intended programmes of study. You may need to clarify the exact units and credits covered by our course, please contact our advice and guidance team should you need support with this.

If you aren’t sure how to achieve your career goals then why not try our new Career Toolkit. If you get stuck, don’t worry, help is at hand just call us on 01727 737000.
