Access to Higher Education – What career paths are available to learners?
The Access to Higher Education Diploma(AHED) is a flexible qualification designed for those aged 18 and over, who would like to apply for higher education courses at university level but do not possess the entry requirements such as A-levels or BTECs. Studying for an AHED is often compared to completing 3 A-levels as learners will accrue UCAS points in order to be accepted into universities.
A key benefit of completing an Access to HE course is that they are renowned for offering flexibility to learners with various modes of study and start dates. They can be studied full-time or part-time allowing you to work around any other commitments you may have, such as a family or work. Many Access to HE providers are still taking applications for courses starting this January.
