Back to Access to Higher Education

The Access to HE Diploma is awarded by CAVA and is nationally recognised as an alternative educational pathway into higher education. The majority of British universities recognise this qualification as an excellent preparation for university and accept the Access to HE Diploma as an alternative to A Levels and other more traditional routes.

Students progress to a wide range of universities near and far, and the vast majority of our students are accepted at their first choice of university. In previous years students have gained places to train as nurses, teachers, midwives, paramedics, operating department practitioners, occupational therapists and in other health care professions.
