Access to Higher Education Diploma (Medicine and Health Care Professions)

Contrary to popular belief, you can choose to embark on a career in medicine in later life. You do not necessarily have to have grown up aspiring to be a doctor, chosen science-based A-levels, or commenced studying anatomy the day you turned 19. The NHS is always in need of capable and qualified health care professionals, so if you believe you have what it takes, now’s the time to act.

Our Access to HE Diploma (Medicine and Health Care Professions) offers students an alternative route into medicine and other health care professions. The qualification, which has been provided by Dimensions Training Solutions, has been uniquely designed to suit career changers and learners who have been away from education for an extended period of time. The course aims to provide aspiring doctors, physiotherapists, radiographers, pharmacists and optometrists with the scientific knowledge they would need if they were to be considered for a position on a degree programme.

The medical and healthcare sector is brimming with exciting and challenging opportunities for students to grab hold of; even if becoming a doctor is not on your agenda. In the UK our healthcare system is an important pillar of society and it is essential we have skilled and passionate people working in all areas. In fact, more than half of the people employed in medicine and healthcare hold alternative roles. Those who study a medical or healthcare oriented degree can find work in research, charities, education, pharmacies, policy writing or even communications.

When you work closely with young children, playing a part in their development, it is worth much more than you could possibly imagine. The work of a teaching assistant maybe challenging, varied and tiring but you really do “make a difference” in the lives of your young pupils...
