Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Health) – Health Studies Pathway

This Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Health) pathway is designed for those  who are interested in a career/degree course in Social Science and Health but have a particular interest in health studies. As such it has a high proportion of Health Studies academic subject units that your university of choice is likely to expect you have completed as part of their entrance criteria.  To see more detail on these exact units check out the ‘Syllabus’ tab on the right hand side menu. The Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Health) is a popular, nationally recognised qualification designed to provide you with the skills needed to apply for education degree courses at universities.

This Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Health) is suitable if you wish to take a social science related course at university, but don’t have the required entry qualifications. It’s been created for learners who’ve been out of full time education for some time.

There’s no waiting to enrol on a specific start date (traditionally September) as this Access to Higher Education Diploma can be studied from home at any time in the year. Distance learning allows you to be really flexible with your studies. Fit this online course around your other commitments and responsibilities, such as work or family. Remember that this is distance learning so the Access to Higher Education Diploma fits into your life rather than the other way round. You can choose how long you’d like to study your Access to Higher Education Diploma for. The minimum expected time a learner would take to complete their Access to Higher Education Diploma is 9 months, the maximum is 2 years. After a short amount of time on the course you’ll be capable of things you hadn’t previously thought possible.

How does my Access to Higher Education Diploma work?

All of our course materials are easy to understand, and provide you with a broad range of additional information to support your learning. You’ll be allocated a personal tutor who’ll have regular contact with you via our on-line platform. You’ll be responsible for setting your own study schedule to fit around your lifestyle and responsibilities; you can therefore study at your own pace and in your own way.

Whilst you will have a great deal of flexibility with your studies, you’ll need to develop the discipline to study independently as well as be realistic about what you can achieve in the time you have available. Contact is all available with fellow students via our unique platform, and through debates and forums where you can share thoughts and ideas.

How will my Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Health) be assessed?

Your Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Health) will be made up of a number of units, each of which will require you to complete an assignment. You’ll find ‘assessment planners’ included within the course materials for each unit; these are designed to help you to complete the relevant assignment. Your personal tutor will be responsible for marking your assignments and giving you with feedback about the work you’ve produced, and how you can improve.

All assignments provide the evidence required to award you with learning credits. You will need 60 credits to achieve an Access to Higher Education Diploma. Of the 60 credits required, 15 will be ungraded and 45 will be graded as a Pass, Merit or Distinction.

What happens after the Access to Higher Education Diploma?

The goal is for you to be fully prepared, so you can apply to a University and begin your journey on a Social Science and Health related degree course.

If you make the most of your time at university then it will open doors to a range of exciting career options, which could include (but are not limited to):

  • Private Enterprise
  • Public Services
  • Health and Social Care
  • Law
  • Media
