Stories of second chance students We are excited to share an article published by the Guardian which recognises some of the amazing achievements of Access to HE students. The article tells the story of four students who have achieved their Access to HE Diplomas and are progressing to university this autumn. Ascentis would like thank all Access Centres that contributed so enthusiastically to this project and their exceptional students who were willing to share their stories with us. Ascentis is pleased to hear that the QAA will also be looking at following up on some of the other case studies submitted throughout 17-18.
