An Access to Higher Education course is a one year course designed for adults aged 19 and over who are returning to study or who have progressed to a higher level from Route-ways or other appropriate qualifications.
Learners will develop the ability to control their own learning and the skills and qualities required to study at a higher level. Access to Higher Education courses can be studied on a full or part time basis. They can take into account family and work commitments with a flexible timetable.
Students on an Access to Higher Education course will be supported in making an application to a higher education programme. This includes assistance with searching for the right course at college or university, accessing funding/grants from LEA or appropriate bodies and completing the application form.
