Not ready for a university-level qualification?

If you’re an adult who would like to study at degree level but don’t feel you have the necessary traditional qualifications to apply — an Access to HE course could be the answer.

You’ll learn in a relaxed, friendly environment in small groups at a pace that suits you. You’ll study for a year and successful completion of the course, will allow you to enter a degree-level course.

Our Access to HE courses are flexible and have been designed to enable you to fit your studies around other commitments, such as the school run.

They are available in a range of subjects, such as art and design, business, media, nursing and midwifery, social sciences, teaching and more.

You may be eligible to apply for a Advanced Learner Loan, which will not need to be repaid if you go on to complete a degree-level course.
