Access to Higher Education: Preparing you for degree-level study

Hackney Community College offers a great study environment and supportive tutors to help you succeed if you are an adult returning to study.

Access to Higher Education at Hackney Community College

Access to Higher Education courses are an advanced level, one year option, and are a perfect alternative to A Levels, for adults aged 19+, wanting to progress to degree level study.

You will work on your specialist subject, as well as study skills to make sure you’re up to speed when you start at university.

We currently offer the following Access to HE Diplomas:

Access to Health & Human Science

Access to Nursing

Paying for your Access course

*You can take an Advanced Learner Loan to pay for your Access to HE tuition. Then, if you progress to and complete a higher education course in the UK, the loan for your Access course will be written off! This write-off is not currently possible with any other level 3 course.

You could also choose to pay for your course without a loan, and could pay in instalments.
