Are you looking for a fast-track route into Higher Education? At Stockton Riverside College, no formal entry qualifications are required.

Our Access to Higher Education Diplomas, awarded by One Awards, are Level 3 courses that prepare you for studying at degree level. If you do not have the traditional qualifications for entry into education, this course is the chance to develop your skills and knowledge in preparation for the demands of higher education.

These courses are part-time and can be completed in one year. There are no formal entry requirements and no upper age limit.

Did you know?

We also offer Pre-Access courses, which are an excellent stepping stone if you are wanting to enter the Access to Higher Education route into university. These courses help develop your study skills and refresh your core skills, including English and Maths.

You can study for free... if you successfully complete an Access to Higher Education course and then progress on to a higher education degree and complete the qualification, you won't have to pay back your Advanced Learner Loan.
