Introduction The Access to Higher Education Diploma programme is an academic course that leads to a recognised qualification for entry into University. It provides a route into careers such as teaching, nursing, other health-related professions, social work, English and Journalism and Law, to name but a few. It may also enhance your employment prospects generally.
The course is an alternative route to the traditional two-year A Level programme and is very widely accepted by universities. It is available to students who are normally aged 19 years and over and may be completed in a year on a full-time basis.
The Access to Higher Education Diploma Programme

· Has no formal entry requirements;
· Re-introduces you to study in a supportive environment;
· Is available on a full-time or part-time basis;
· Offers a balanced choice of academic subjects;
· Ensures that you have the necessary core skills (Maths, IT and Study Skills) to enable you to progress to university;
· Provides individual tutorial support;
· Results in an Access Diploma that is recognised by the QAA (Quality Assurance Agency) on successful completion.

Delivery
You may attend full-time for one year or part-time for up to three years. Most classes are conveniently timed for parents with children at school. The course starts in September with an alternative start date in January.
Although the College has no crache facilities on site, there are childcare facilities within 100 yards of the College.
Programme of Study
The Access to Higher Education programme provides four recognised pathways leading to the Access to Higher Education Diploma, namely:

· Humanities
· Science
· Social Science
· Combined Studies

Each pathway requires you to study the three common core subjects of Information Technology, Maths and Study Skills. If you already have GCSE Maths at grade C or above you will be exempt from the core Maths.
In addition, you will study three or four academic subjects selected from the recommended subject combinations for the specific pathway.
Academic Subjects
Biology, English Literature, Essential Law, History, Psychology, Chemistry, Environmental Studies, Geography, Human Physiology & Health Sociology.
Part-time Study
If you decide that part-time study is more appropriate for you, it is possible to take any number of subjects. For example, you may opt to take one core subject and one academic subject in the first year and then take the remaining subjects the following year.
Cost
The cost of the one-year full time programme is £630.00. However, if you are 25 years of age or under and have no full level 3 qualification, the course is free. It is also free if you are in receipt of a means tested benefit.
The cost of part-time study is £4.60 per hour, up to a maximum of £630.00.
All students will be required to pay an £80.00 registration fee (non-refundable).

Assessment All subjects are assessed by a variety of methods, including coursework, presentations, practical work and tests.
