Access to HE is designed for people who want to study in higher education but left school or college without the qualifications they need to secure a place. Last year, around 23,000 students in the UK achieved an Access to HE Diploma and more than 20,000 Access to HE students were offered a place at university or college.  The course is perfect for adults who are currently working in or who have an interest in engineering and those seeking a change in career direction.

Learners will be taught the latest industry-standard knowledge by expert lecturers and guests from the industry.
