Course summary

This is one of our Level 3 Access to HE Diploma Pathways. The subject set includes: Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Study Skills, which you will need to study to complete the Access Diploma. The Access to HE Diploma is validated by Ascentis. All students must commit to a full programme of study over one year. If you are aged 19 or over, do not already have a Level 3 qualification (such as A Levels) and intend to go to university the Level 3 Access Diploma will be of interest. You will need to be able to attend college 3 days a week and have time to study independently. You will learn through a combination of lectures, practicals, seminars and tutorials and private study. Extra help outside of class time may be available in Study Clinics by appointment. You are also actively encouraged to make use of the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) site where you can find materials to supplement your class learning. The Access to HE diploma will enable you to progress onto several different degrees and diplomas in Higher Education. Progression is dependent on succeeding in a combination of subjects, which are acceptable to university admissions tutors. Students on this pathway have progressed onto a wide range of degree courses including; maths, physics, chemistry and engineering (including; mechanical, electrical, chemical and civil). Although the Access to HE diploma's primary role is in the preparation of mature students for university, the rigorous academic training developed in the course is attractive to employers in a wide range of business.
