Access to HE

An Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma is a qualification that prepares students to study at degree level. Whether your current qualifications do not fit with your desired career path, or you have not achieved a level 3 qualification, an Access to Higher Education Diploma may be for you!

At HRC, we offer Access to Higher Education courses in the following fields:

Nursing and Midwifery

Psychosocial Studies

These courses are ideal if you are looking to go to University and start a career in any of the following industries:



Mental Health Nursing

Paramedic Science

Social Work


Youth Work




Forensic Psychology


There is no upper age limit for our Access to HE courses, nor do you need to require any UCAS points. Access to HE students will be in college for approximately two days a week (Wednesdays and Fridays), completing a combination of classroom-based study as well as additional blended/home learning. This makes the courses ideal for those looking for the flexibility of part-time learning, whether it be around childcare or current job roles. Our Access to HE courses are delivered by experienced tutors and result in students achieving an Access Diploma which attracts 60 credits.

Along with studying an Access course at HRC, you will receive support throughout the whole process of completing UCAS forms, personal statements, and applications.

If you do not currently have the relevant qualifications, HRC’s Access to HE courses are the ideal route to help you get a step closer to your desired career destination.
