Access to Higher Education

Bishop Auckland College has an excellent reputation for providing Access to Higher Education courses. Since they first became available, the courses have enabled hundreds of adults to progress to university to fulfil their dreams and aspirations of studying for a degree – an opportunity which many thought had passed them by.

The Access to Higher Education Diploma is designed for mature students (aged over 19 at the start of the programme), who want to go to university but don’t have the formal qualifications to get there. The programme is structured into specific pathways, which prepare students to study in Higher Education for a variety of careers as well as subject related degrees.
