What does the course involve?
The Access to HE diplomas are designed to prepare students for degree level study. They offer a rigorous standard of study which are flexible and attractive to students who would like to improve their educational qualifications and are popular with students who may have been out of formal education for some time. All learning and assessment are via Pearl, an online learning platform. Students will be provided with a personal tutor to support them through their progression.
Students wishing to study Healthcare related courses will enrol to Access to HE Diploma (Health Professionals). The modules of study are Biology, Health Studies, Psychology, Sociology, and Skills for Learning.
How is the course assessed?
Modules are broken down into units and you are assessed at the end of each unit of study through a variety of assessment methods.
How much does it cost?
Fees will be confirmed on application or via our website. In many instances, funding such as the Advanced Learner Loan will be available to cover the cost of the course. Successful completion of the Access to HE Diploma and your subsequent HE course currently means you do not have to pay this loan back.
While it is not required, some students choose to obtain additional books to assist their studies.
Guidance is offered at advice events, interview and induction to ensure students are choosing the best pathway to meet the requirements for their intended university course.
