Across our campuses in North and Mid Devon, we offer Access to Higher Education Diplomas in Art & Design; Humanities, Education & Social Work; Nursing, Midwifery & Medical Science; Science; and Teaching (Humanities or Science route).
These courses are specifically designed for learners aged 19 or over, who wish to take a university-level course but don’t have the normal entrance requirements for Higher Education. They are recognised by universities and other Higher Education institutions as an alternative to standard A-level entry.
There are many reasons why this route may suit you; you may be a student who has completed some qualifications and can show the right level of skill and maturity for this programme, or you may be a mature applicant who has not studied A-levels but possesses a wealth of experience in your chosen field. The courses provide a broad programme of study that includes core modules and more specialist modules that will enable you to progress.
Year after year, our students secure places at the country’s leading universities on courses such as midwifery, nursing, psychology, paramedic science, sport & exercise science, optometry and many more.
