CAVA Access to HE Diploma
You must be aged 19 or over to apply for this course.
As the majority of our Access students are returning to learning as adults, we consider a range of experience when accepting students onto an Access programme. All students will be assessed to see what level they are learning at, particularly the level of English and maths skills, as these will be key to success whilst on a programme at Nottingham College. Your experience and level of study will be assessed at interview and this will determine your offer of a place at College.
You’ll need 5 GCSEs at grades 9–4 (A*–C) including English and Maths (equivalents may be considered).
It is not possible to study both GCSE English and Maths on this course.

You will compile a portfolio of evidence of your work.
You can go on to degree level study in law or a law related subject at Nottingham College or at university.
You can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with the costs of your Access to HE course. Loan eligibility does not depend on your income and there are no credit checks.
If you progress on to degree level study and complete a full degree, Student Finance England will ‘write off’ any outstanding Advanced Learner Loan balances you owe. This means you do not have to repay it.
Subject to eligibility you may be able to study this course for free, funded through the Adult Education Budget. Upon receipt of your application, we will assess your eligibility and advise you of your next steps.
