Back to Access to Higher Education

The access course is aimed to prepare you for a university course, which is why over 90% of our students go on to study at university or be in full time relevant employment within six months of completing the course!

We assume you have no/little knowledge of one or more subjects below, we cover all of the fundamentals and then build on them stage by stage from novice to pro.

Where will it take me?

The majority of British universities recognise this qualification as excellent preparation for university and accept the Access to HE Diploma as an alternative to A-levels and other more traditional routes. The vast majority of our students are accepted at their first choice of university. In previous year’s students have gained places at a wide range of universities including UWE, Bristol and Plymouth.

There is also a progression route to study at Truro College on the following courses:
FdSc Computer Technology
FdSc/HNC Cyber Security
BSc Applied Computing Technologies
