Our talented and inspiring teachers offer a range of pathways which enable smooth progression to further studies, including Higher National Certificates or Diplomas, Foundation Degrees, and full degree programmes across a range of disciplines.

And, if the degree programme you’re looking to move onto requires you to have had a vocationally related work placement, we’ll help you find it.

Our students will also have access to financial* and wellbeing advice and support from the very beginning.

We know it’s important to our students that the course they’re studying makes sense for their current lifestyle and financial obligations, as well as their future plans.

Take a look at the information about the funding available.

  • Advanced Learner Loans are also available to students aged 19 in England
  • If you are aged 19 or over, you may be expected to pay full fees. However, you will able to apply for a loan under the Government’s Advanced Learning Loans scheme to cover the cost of these fees
  • These loan repayments will be expected to start once you earn over £27,295 per year. But if you complete a QAA-recognised Access to Higher Education course, and then go onto complete a degree (or other recognised Higher Education course) you won’t have to repay the remaining loan for the Access to Higher Education course. Which means the loan you originally took out will be written off

Learn more about Advanced Learning Loans.

Level 3 Access to Higher Education Diploma (Health Professions)

“If you are thinking about doing an Access to HE course, don’t be afraid, just do it. It was a last-minute decision for me, and it has been the best last-minute decision of my life so far! The lecturers are brilliant. The course is intensive but it’s not difficult when you set your mind to it. I listened to what the lecturers said, put it in to practice, did independent study and extracurricular reading and I’ve come out with a Distinction.”



If you are aged 19+ we can help you upskill and invest in your future with one of our FREE adult courses.
