Online Access to Higher Education Diplomas

get into university without A-levels
Trustpilot

What are they?

Access to HE Logo
Access Diplomas are for people who wish to enter university but who do not have A-levels, or who last studied a number of years ago. There are no entry requirements. They are equivalent to 3 A-levels and are accepted by almost every university. Most careers now require you to complete a degree and this the ideal starting point, even if you have no prior qualifications.

Are they accredited?

Ascentis Logo
All our Access to HE Diplomas are fully accredited through Ascentis (our Access Validating Agency (AVA)) and regulated by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), so they are part of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This means that you can apply to Universities, Teacher Training Colleges and Nurse Training Schools using your Diploma.

How do I study?

Access Diplomas are expected to take about 1 year to complete although some complete quicker and others slower. There are no exams. You work at home at your own pace. Your friendly subject-specialist qualified personal tutor supports your learning with one-to-one tutorials and helps you with any problems or concerns. There are also Online Classes and Group Tutorials.

After the course

Our Access to HE Diplomas are perfectly suited to meet university entry requirements and also prepare you for undergraduate study. This results from over 25 years of experience providing Access Courses by distance learning, and our strong relationships with universities. Our students have gone on to study degrees at over 130 of them across the UK. We also help with your UCAS Application.

Emily

The website and materials were easy to navigate and the Facebook group gave me extra reassurance and support.

The tutors were supportive, patient and most importantly motivated me to carry on when I found it tough. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing to gain an extra qualification to achieve their dream career. Emily

Yannick

The learning materials were excellent and they exceeded my expectations. I would like to thank my family and the tutors for their amazing support.

I am happy to say to have secured a place to study a Nursing Degree this September. I cannot recommend them enough. Yannick

John

The course is excellently written with information perfectly explained for those who have been out of education.

I completed mine whilst working full time, undergoing several overseas military deployments in support of the COVID pandemic. I could not have done this without them, my tutors were with me every step of the way! John

Richard

Support of tutors, & the wider student community were fundamental in enabling me to overcome adversity. The peer support of fellow students proved a wonderful resource. People of all ages & backgrounds united in their desire to study & self-develop, quick to offer help & encouragement. So I became active in supporting others through the Facebook Group. Richard

Sam

I have dyslexia. They suited all my needs. It was flexible, affordable, and the modules offered would provide me with the fundamental basics to study a Law degree.

They did more than help me get into my dream Russell Group university studying Law. The whole experience finally made me feel academically worthy. Sam

Aaliya

Tutors and staff have been fantastic in helping me achieve the grades I need, as well as any other situations I needed support with.

I applied to 2 universities and have received conditional offers from both.

I have achieved more credits than the offer requires, it wouldn't have been possible without them. Aaliya

Mehluli

I loved the flexibility that comes with the course and the outstanding tutors.

I have since been offered a place from two universities to study a BSc in Adult Nursing.

It is in this regard that I strongly recommend them without hesitation for any person who would like to reboot their career. Mehluli

Beth

I was very nervous about beginning my studies as I thought that Access to HE Diplomas were aimed at mature students, being 17 at the time of beginning my studies. But I was so wrong!

The Diploma is for anyone wanting to enter higher education. The staff, and my tutors especially, couldn't have been more accommodating and supportive. Beth

Victoria

From day one I found my tutors to be incredibly friendly, supportive and accessible. They encourage independent learning, but are always there to give guidance and answer questions of any kind.

The learning materials are brilliant; extremely thorough and logically laid out in topics and sub-topics, so you move smoothly through. Victoria

Sean

The materials were easy to follow. I received advice from others via the Facebook page & from my personal tutor, who was always so quick to answer any questions. During the modules, I developed my research methods & even my English improved. I am far more confident in finding the pros & cons of every theory. I now feel I am in a far better position & I am currently enrolled on an LLB Qualifying Law degree. Sean

Fanny

They stood out for me because of their flexibility and affordability.

Enrolling to study remotely for a science course, was overwhelmingly nerve-wracking but my tutors were very kind, supportive and helpful. Their support allowed me to excel and achieve high grades. I have now secured a place at a university. Fanny
