About Access to Higher Education Diploma (Healthcare Professions)

Our Access course provides an exciting opportunity to gain the required qualifications for entry to a healthcare related degree at university.

The course is suitable for students who do not have traditional qualifications such as A Levels, or who require relevant qualifications to meet the entry requirements for their chosen degree.

This is an intensive one year course for those looking to progress to University for degrees in Nursing, Midwifery, Paramedic Science, Physiotherapy and other related disciplines.

Our Access course provides an excellent foundation for you to study at university level. Alongside subject specific learning, you will also develop academic and research skills that are necessary to study at degree level.

Our course has excellent success rates, and it is delivered by highly experienced and knowledgeable tutors.  Students can benefit from learning support sessions where appropriate.
