Access to Higher Education Diplomas


Graduation, Access to higher education diploma, UCW students


Prepare for degree-level study in a range of areas with an Access to HE Diploma.

At UCW, we believe that everyone should be able to achieve their ambitions through higher education. These Access to Higher Education Diplomas, delivered in partnership with Weston College at Knightstone Campus, have been developed to prepare students for degree-level study.

The courses provide the study skills and qualifications you’ll need to be able to apply for higher education, with many having a scheduled teaching time of up to 15 hours per week. They are tailored to provide an individual programme to help students learn through lectures, seminars, presentations and project work – just like at university.

We also recognise Access to HE Diplomas as suitable entry qualifications for many of the Foundation Degrees on offer at UCW.

Please email Maxine Park or phone the Weston College switchboard on 01934 411 411 to find out more.
