Our Access to Higher Education (HE) courses are university recognised full Level 3 qualifications which will help develop your skills and abilities so you can progress on to a HE course, even if you left school without a technical qualification or A-Levels.

If you progress to Higher Education after taking out a loan for an Access to HE diploma course, your Advanced Learner Loan balance will be written off, on completion of your HE course.

What our students say

“At University Centre Rotherham the tutors are really knowledgeable. We get involved in exciting topics that are heavily practical, which suits my style of learning so I enjoy what I’m doing all the time.”

“I enjoy doing the practical work as we play lots of football and do regular exercise as part of our course. It is interesting as you learn a lot about the different public sectors”
