This very popular course is for you if you are over 19 and interested in returning to education with the aim of training to be a nurse but lack confidence because you may not have appropriate qualifications. The Access to HE course is designed to meet your needs by helping you to gain new academic skills and qualifications appropriate for entry to degree level study. You can use the qualification to gain a place at university or to enhance your career prospects (e.g., higher apprenticeships).
Students choose a diploma and academic subjects suitable for your career aspiration.
You will produce a portfolio of work over the year including essays, reports, presentations and a research unit. You gain credits for the assignments you do. You accumulate credits towards the diploma. There is a minimum of one compulsory exam unit.
The Access to HE Diploma provides students with the necessary grounding to progress on to Higher Education courses. The majority of UK Universities will accept an Acces to HE Diploma as an alternative to A Levels and other more traditional routes.
