Course Description

The Access to Higher Education Diploma (Science) is a Level 3 qualification which prepares people without traditional qualifications for study at university. 

It is designed for:

  • adults who, because of social, educational or individual circumstances, were unable to participate in or benefit from initial education;

  • adults from groups under-represented in higher education;

  • adults seeking a change of direction because of unemployment or lack of career opportunities in their previous field and who have a demonstrable interest in entering a science related profession.
