Access to Health Education Diploma (Health Professionals)

Access to Health Education Diploma (Health Professionals)

The Access to HE Diploma (Health Professionals) is one of our most popular courses. This is because the healthcare sector offers a diverse range of challenging and exciting career paths for students to choose from. This qualification’s universal content allows students the flexibility to decide which speciality they want to pursue after they finish the diploma.

This Access to HE Diploma has been created as an alternative to more traditional qualifications. In the UK, many universities are happy to accept applications from students who hold, or are studying towards, this kind of qualification. Most health-related degree programmes will also require a minimum of grade C in GCSE English and maths.

As this is a distance learning course, it is perfect for learners who have been out of education for an extended period and have other time constraints. What’s more is that our students can begin working on their course from the moment of enrolment; whether that is in September or at any other point during the year.

Entry requirements

You must have a Level 2 in Maths and English
