Welcome to the Online Access to HE Diplomas at Sandwell College!
Traditionally, to secure a place at university you would need a certain number of A Levels, but now, most universities accept Access to Higher Education Diplomas as equivalent qualifications. Sandwell College can help you move up to degree-level study by offering a range of accredited Access to Higher Education Diploma courses in an array of subjects.
Our career-specific courses are delivered online, giving you the freedom to tailor your study schedule around your existing commitments. What’s more, you won’t have to take any exams, and you could complete your course in less than a year! Learners have two years to finish an Access to Higher Education Diploma, but on average, our learners take around 9 months.
The online delivery is through the platform PEARL (Personalised E-Assisted Responsive Learning). Pearl allows learners to achieve recognised Access to Higher Education Diplomas from home, on the move or in the workplace. Learners are at the centre of their learning journey and you will receive full support and guidance on making the most out of the online platform.
Pearl is more than just a delivery tool, course materials, assessments and interactive content are mapped to your specific regulated diploma through a cloud-based Virtual Learning Environment. Learners are able to track their progress through the interactive dashboard, communicate with their peers and tutors, view study materials, assignments and feedback.
