Access to Higher Education Diploma (Full Time)

The Access to Higher Education course provides an alternative route to Higher Education for adult students. It is designed for adults (19 years of age and older) who would like to progress to study at university. Alternatively, it is for those who want a career change or for those who enjoy study purely for interest.The ACCESS to HE full-time course will run from early September to late June either for one year or part-time over two consecutive years. In that time you will have to study three subjects from your chosen diploma; for the part-time course you can take one or two in your first year and the remaining one/s in your second year. Each subject will take 3.5 hours of classroom time in addition to a minimum of 3.5 hours of independent study. Including Study Skills, this should take approximately 25 – 30 hours a week full-time or 15 – 20 hours a week part-time. Classes can be taken during the day-time or evening depending on your choice of subjects. The ACCESS to HE diploma, validated by ASCENTIS, will earn you 15 ungraded and 45 graded level 3 credits, which is recognised accreditation for entry into university.Students can choose from a variety of diplomas: Allied Health Professions, Health & Social Care Professions, Humanities, Humanities with Mathematics, Nursing & Midwifery, Primary Teaching, Science and Social Sciences.

Before the course, I was left in belief that my academic talent was limited. However, thanks to the incredible staff who support every effort and the clear and concise course structure, I now have an offer to a top Russell group university. For anyone who is ambitious but unsure how to get there. Peter Symonds College is the place for you.
