Access to Higher Education

Specifically aimed at students over 19, the Access to HE Diploma offers a recognised entry qualification to higher education. You can study the course full time over a year if you have GCSE English and Maths at grade 4 or above. If you do not hold these GCSEs you can take the course part-time over two years and work towards these GCSEs as part of your Access studies. We offer a range of Diplomas, each with a choice of subjects available. But you do need to check what subjects your prospective degree course requires to help you decide what you should take. The Access team at St Vincent College is also able to help you make the right choices, and this will be discussed at interview.
