Course description

Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science)

Are you fascinated by the science behind crime or do you want to find out more about the human mind? The Access to HE Diploma (Social Science) is an alternative route to A-Levels that many universities accept as part of their entry requirements. This flexible qualification will prepare you to start a social science degree course.

The field of social science looks at society and relationships between people. Psychology and criminology are popular pathways that can lead to a range of different job roles. This  course explores units on both topics, giving you scope to narrow your focus at university.

Access to HE Diplomas are ideal for busy students who are juggling a full-time job or family life. With no term dates, you can get started straightaway online.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

What happens after the Access to HE Diploma?

This qualification will prepare you to make the step up to university. Dedicated units will give you the confidence to research independently and write assignments. You can go on to apply for a range of degree courses related to psychology or criminology.

Psychology graduates come away with transferable skills that employers look for, such as critical thinking. You could specialise in one area of psychology or pursue a career in sectors including mental health, counselling or education.

Studying criminology will equip you with analytical and presentation skills. Graduates typically go on to work in policing, probation, law or social work.
