      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.

      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).
