Access to Higher Education

Guaranteed Progression for Access to HE Students

A Guarantee from Teesside University

If you successfully complete an Access to Higher Education Diploma at one of the colleges in our higher education business partnership, we guarantee you a place on a degree programme. You must also achieve all programme-specific requirements (for example, a specific grade in Maths). This guarantee does not apply to Department of Health funded programmes.

Are you looking to study for a degree or foundation degree but haven’t got the right qualifications? Stockton Riverside College offers Access to Higher Education courses that can help you get there.

We have a range of courses that can help you achieve your goal and have a great record in helping our students succeed.


Advanced Learner Loan

Funding your future!

If you’re planning to study an Access to HE course you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan.

These loans help you to pay the tuition fees for your course.

Most learners studying an Access course will qualify for these loans from the UK government. It’s easy to apply, your household income isn’t taken into account and there’s no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until your income is over £21,000 a year.

The loan could be written off if you complete a degree programme after an Access to HE course.
