Access to Higher Education

If you are over 18-years-old, and wanting to progress to university, our Level 3 Access to HE courses are designed to help you unlock new career prospects, and advance onto a university-level course once completed. On the night, our Access to HE tutors will be available to answer any questions you may have and guide you through your options.

If you’re aged over 19 you may even be eligible to apply for the Advanced Learner Loan to help pay for your tuition fees for an Access course. You’ll be able to find out more on the night.

Higher Education

Did you know we offer university-level courses at college?

With the opening of our new Vision University Centre, we’re offering more university-level courses to more students than ever before – all of which are flexible and can easily be fitted around other commitments. HE programmes on offer include HNCs, HNDs, foundation degrees and full honours degrees. Alongside this, students can choose to study professional courses in accounting, marketing, HR and purchasing and supply, or attend a number of masterclasses.

Careers advice

We appreciate that with all the different educational options available, it can be quite overwhelming for those who haven’t got a clear career goal in mind. As a result, our careers team are happy to provide impartial, informative advice and guidance – helping you to make a decision about your next steps.

Support services

You will also be able to access our support services to ask any questions you may have, such as whether you might be eligible for financial support, how to get to college from home and additional learning support.
