Access to Higher Education | Weston College

Access to Higher Education

Our successful Access to Higher Education courses are designed to give you the skills and qualifications you need to apply for university.

Weston College's Access to Higher Education provision is well-established, with consistently high pass rates. This means that if you study with us you are likely to achieve the grades you need to progress on to a university-level course.

It's never too late to go to university. A degree can improve your employability and teach you a variety of skills that employers are looking for, such as analysis, research, managing time and budgets, networking and writing and communication skills. Having a degree also means you're more likely to get a higher-paid job.

Concerned about adding to loans and debt? Student Finance England will ‘write off’ the loan you take to pay for an Access to HE course, provided you go on to successfully complete a university-level qualification.

You'll fit in at Weston College. Because we're a further and higher education college, we're used to teaching adults - in fact over 15,000 of our students are 19+ years old. Our award-winning facilities are closer to what you'd expect from a university. You can find out more about them here.

Plus, if you study Access to Higher Education with us and decide to apply for a degree at University Centre Weston, we'll prioritise your application.

What Our Students Say

Ed, Access to Higher Education – Health and Social Care


“I wanted to progress in my career and Weston College offered me the opportunity to do this. The College staff are very approachable and there are lots of extra-curricular activities on offer including golf, which I really enjoyed.”

Ed works as a senior carer in a privately-owned psychiatric unit. Not having good A Levels, his only route to university was through an Access to HE course.

What next? Ed is aiming to progress on to a Mental Health Nursing Degree at the University of the West of England before going into management in the psychiatric care field.

Former school: Clifton College
