Access to Higher Education Diploma?
Applications for the Access to HE Diploma will be taken FROM Monday the 12th APRIL 2021 onward.
Our Access programme is a one-year part-time course, designed for over 19’s who may have been out of education for a while and would like another opportunity to study. If you are from a forces background you could be very well suited to the structure and focus required for Access to HE especially if you have had to leave the forces early and need a new direction plus new qualifications to achieve that.
Access to H.E Diploma is an accepted alternative to ‘A’ levels and is recognised by universities for admission onto a range of degree courses.
Former learners studying the Access to Higher Education Course have progressed onto careers into nursing, physiotherapy, or have been accepted onto degree programmes.
Our programme offers pathways in Human Biology & Psychology (Health) OR Criminology & Psychology. In addition, you will study Core Skills units, designed to make the return to education less stressful and more enjoyable.
NHS Bursary and funding in England: Health students applying for eligible degrees will be able to claim for financial support. Please go to https://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/nhs-bursary for further help on this and to check which degree courses are considered. Nursing students will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year to help with living costs. The funding will be given to all new and continuing degree-level nursing, midwifery and many allied health students from September 2021.
Comment from MMU re their Criminology degree programmes and students applying following the completion of an Access Diploma:
We are quite flexible in the subjects we accept from applicants – almost anything where an applicant can provide a convincing case for relevance! Our advertised preference is for at least some L3 study in a humanities or social science subject area so the course presented here fits the profile well.
We’re happy to develop relationships with colleges who provide courses that prepare students in subjects we deliver at degree level. Visits to colleges by lecturers and/or visits to University will be arranged.
PLEASE NOTE: The Award of the Access to Higher Education Diploma does not guarantee entry into University.
