If you do not possess the traditional qualifications, such as A Levels then the Access to HE Diploma is an excellent alternative route to university. This diploma is accepted by most UK universities and helps prepare you for the demands of Higher Education. It has been specially constructed to suit the needs of potential students who have been out of education for some time.
We strongly recommend that you first select the degree course you would like to study, and make sure that the university you wish to attend is happy with your Access to HE Diploma. Once you have checked that it meets their entrance criteria, you will know that this course is the right path for you.
Distance learning courses offer you freedom with your studies. First of all, you are not required to wait until September to get started. You can start straight away or begin studying at a time that suits you the most. Secondly, you are not required to attend classes, you can study from home, at a time that is convenient for you. This is perfect for those who have a particularly demanding work or family life.
