This Access to Higher Education Diploma course is suitable for students who need a range of social science and biology units for entry into university.

Our online Access to Higher Education course allows you to take control of your own learning without having to attend lectures and tutorials at set times. Work through our interactive courses at your own pace and if you need help you can contact your personal tutor and they will be able to support you with a telephone or videoconference tutorial. All our tutors are all fully qualified and experienced teachers and subject specialists in the topics you will be studying.
