Access to Higher Education Diploma (Health Professionals)

The Access to HE Diploma (Health Professionals) is one of our most popular courses. This is because the health care sector offers a diverse range of challenging and exciting career paths for students to choose from. This qualification’s universal content allows students the flexibility to decide which speciality they want to pursue after they finish the diploma.

This Access to HE Diploma has been created as an alternative to more traditional qualifications. In the UK, many universities are happy to accept applications from students who hold, or are studying towards, this kind of qualification. Most health related degree programmes will also require a minimum of grade C in GCSE English and maths.

As this is a distance learning course, it is perfect for learners who have been out of education for an extended period and have other time constraints. Students can study where they want and when they want, as long as it is convenient for them. What’s more is that our students can begin working on their course from the moment of enrolment; whether that is in September or at any other point during the year. The Access to HE Diploma (Health) can be completed in as little as six months. However, it all depends on the learner’s circumstances and we encourage our students to work at a pace that they are comfortable with; even if this means stretching the studies out over two years.

How does my Access to HE Diploma work?

As soon as you enrol with Stonebridge, you will be given online access to our interactive, easy to understand course materials. We will also supply you with a broad range of information which should answer any questions you may have about the process. If you are still unsure about anything there is no need to worry, because every student at Stonebridge has access to our tutors. You can contact a tutor via phone, email or by using our online platform, PEARL.

At Stonebridge we pride ourselves on the amount of flexibility we offer our students. For many people, this flexibility is exactly what it is that makes further study feasible. However, when studying in this way it is important to develop the discipline to work independently. Setting achievable goals and working to a personalised schedule will certainly help students succeed.

 

How will my Access to HE Diploma be assessed?

The Access to HE Diploma is a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification, which is regulated by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). In order to pass the qualification, all of the attached assignments should be completed and returned to one of our tutors. Once a tutor has given you a grade and supplied you with useful feedback, you are free to move on to your next piece of work and so on. Once you have all of your marks, Stonebridge will have all the evidence needed to award you with qualification credits. In order to achieve the Access to HE Diploma you must achieve 60 credits in total. Of these credits, 45 are taken from graded units which focus on academic subject content. The other 15 credits are drawn from a number of ungraded units which are included to help you to improve your academic study skills.

What happens after my Access to HE Diploma?

After successfully completing this Access to Higher Education Diploma, you’ll have a good understanding of the healthcare sector and therefore be eligible to apply to a number of health related undergraduate courses. Once you have chosen and completed your degree programme, you will be ready to begin your chosen career. Many health graduates go on to work in the NHS or even private practice. Careers open to health graduates include:

  • Speech and language therapist
  • Local government
  • Care worker
  • Teacher
  • Social worker
