Natural Science Pathway - Access to Higher Education Diploma (Science)

Natural science refers to any science which relates to the physical world. Students who follow the natural science pathway will gain a foundation of knowledge in physics, chemistry and biology modules and gain the necessary qualifications needed to enter university.

As this pathway provides a combination of all the sciences, it is ideal for students who are still deciding which area of science they are interested in pursuing. After this course, students should be fully prepared to embark on a biology, physics, chemistry or natural science related degree programme. As the course has been specifically designed for learners who have spent time away from education, it also includes modules which help to develop academic practices and study skills.

With an Access to HE Diploma, there is no need to wait until September to get started. You can start studying towards this qualification at any time of the year. Furthermore, you won’t have to attend inconvenient classes which will interfere with your schedule. With distance learning, you can study at any time of day, in the location of your choice. This flexibility makes an Access to HE Diploma a perfect choice for learners with busy work and family lives. Whether you choose to complete it in six months or two years, an Access to HE Diploma will take you where you need to go.

How does my Access to HE Diploma (Science) work?

Our comprehensive course materials are interesting and easy to understand. Each student will also receive a broad range of additional information to support their learning. Everyone will also have access to our Stonebridge tutors who will be contactable via phone, email or our online platform, PEARL. Students can also get in touch with their classmates using our online platform.

Distance learning offers students a great deal of flexibility. This is great for busy learners, but it means that they will also need to learn to discipline themselves. By creating study schedules and setting reachable targets, students will be able to make their success story a reality.

How will my Access to HE Diploma (Science) be assessed?

Your qualification will combine a number of units. Each of these units will end with an assignment. Once you have completed the assignment to the best of your ability, you should return it to a tutor. The tutor will then mark the assessment and return it to you with useful feedback and strategies for improvement. Once your work has been marked, Stonebridge will be able to award you with a number of credits. The Access to HE Diploma is a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification, regulated by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). In order to achieve the Access to HE Diploma you must achieve 60 credits in total. 45 of these credits are taken from graded units which are concerned with academic subject content. The remaining 15 credits are ungraded units which are included to help you to develop your study skills.

What happens after the Access to HE Diploma (Science)?

After you have completed your diploma, you will likely be primed and ready for undergraduate level study at the university of your choice. Once you have successfully completed an undergraduate degree, you will have many career paths open to you. These include but are not limited to careers in:

  • Hospitals
  • Laboratories
  • Science publishing
  • Teaching
  • Universities
  • Government
  • Hospitals
