Access to Higher Education programmes are one-year courses that will allow you to access your chosen degree, or an apprenticeship. They are designed to prepare those without traditional qualifications for higher education study. You might have been out of formal education for a while or left school with few qualifications.
Entry requirements for an Access to Higher Education course are at least 4 GCSE's at 4/C or above, including Maths and English. A Pre-Access course is available for those who do not have these qualifications
Some students can receive financial assistance for their courses through a loan, which becomes repayable once their income surpasses a certain amount. For more information on repaying student loans, Click here. To find out more about Government funded education grants, Click here.
