All our Access to Higher Education Diplomas are online-based and therefore can be studied at anytime, anywhere. All you need is an internet connection. Your learning materials, assessments, support and additional learning resources are available 24/7, which means that you can study whenever suits you.
Our Access to Higher Education Diplomas can all be supported by a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan. If you’re eligible, this means that you won’t have to worry about finding the money for your course up front yourself. And, what’s more, you won’t even need to pay a penny back if you complete an undergraduate programme following your Access to HE Diploma. We will help you every step of the way with your application and you can view your funding status online at any time. The application process couldn’t be easier.
Our courses are delivered through the engaging learning platform, PEARL (Personalised e-Assisted Responsive Learning). PEARL is accessible online via any platform – PC, laptop, phone and tablet – and is designed to make studying enjoyable, interactive and personal for every user. With rich, customisable content, games, puzzles, projects, videos and case studies, PEARL takes learning to the next level so that you can make the most out of your study programme.
Online learners can create their own personal and professional profile via the platform. Through these, you can communicate with tutors, other learners and even employers. Not only will you be part of a vibrant distance learning community, but you will also be a member of a careers network that will support you with your next steps and help you to secure your dream job when you’re ready.
