About Your Diploma

Nurses have always been a key part of the healthcare system in the UK as they play a crucial role in providing treatment, support, and care to adults, children, and families. If you want to put yourself at the forefront of this effort, then you can kickstart your career journey with education.
 
Our Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing) is the ideal way to begin your upwards trajectory towards your dream role. This course is designed for learners who do not possess the A Levels needed to get into university. 
 
Instead, our Access to HE Diploma will act as the equivalent of 3 A Levels and is widely accepted by universities across the UK. When you successfully complete the course, you will receive an accredited diploma, but you must complete both Part 1 and Part 2 to gain your qualification.
 
By splitting the course, you are able to take control of your learning journey and spread the cost over a longer period of time, freeing you from any financial pressure. Plus, rather than having to complete the entire course within two years, you can dedicate two years to studying Part 1.
 
However, if you want to complete Part 1 in less than two years, you have the freedom to do so! Any learner who completes this portion of the course before the two-year mark will receive a discount when they move on to Part 2.
 
During your studies of Part 1, you will explore a mixture of academic and industry-focused topics, as well as study skills, getting you prepared for degree-level learning. From writing skills and assignment preparation to psychology and the roles and responsibilities of a registered Nurse.
 

Getting Started

As well as having the option of splitting your course into two parts, you will be able to complete the Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing) from the comfort of your own home. This is because both parts are delivered entirely online.
 
You will have the freedom and flexibility to study each module around your existing commitments, as all you need is a computer, laptop, or tablet, and a stable internet connection to complete your course. 
 
As soon as you enrol on Part 1, you will be issued with an Individual Learning Plan, which will outline your submission deadlines, helping you keep track of your studies and progress. You will have access to expert tutors and our dedicated support team.
 
Once you have completed this portion of the course, you can enrol on Part 2 when you’re ready and go on to achieve your diploma.
 
Stonebridge Associated Colleges is one of the UK’s leading distance learning providers, helping learners all over the country gain the qualifications they need to kickstart a new career.
