Access to Higher Education
The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma is a Level 3 qualification licensed by the QAA and accepted by Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) throughout the UK. It prepares learners who are returning to education or who left school without the qualifications required to be able to progress on to higher education. Access to HE Diplomas provide a good foundation in the knowledge and skills required for studying at university level.
As the largest Access Validating Agency nationwide, and with a ‘Low Risk’ rating from the QAA, we work with centres nationwide to deliver high quality Access to HE Diplomas.
Who are these qualifications for?
Access to Higher Education Diplomas are for learners aged 19+ who do not have the qualifications required to enter HE. Each year around 30,000 learners in the UK take Access to HE courses and many go on to succeed in higher education and embark on life changing new careers.

Our qualifications are designed to allow learners to go on to study at degree level or progress in their employment.
