QAA, the regulator for Access to Higher Education Diplomas, has recently renewed its wordmarks restricting the use of the terms "Access to HE" and "Access to Higher Education" to QAA-recognised Access to HE provision only.
Recognition is given to Diplomas developed, approved and awarded by QAA licensed Access Validating Agencies (AVAs). Information about the AVAs is available on our website together with a full list of QAA-recognised Access to HE Diplomas.
Students wishing to enrol on Access to HE Diplomas should check the course they wish to study appears on our Diploma search. Only courses listed on the database are approved by a QAA licensed Access Validating Agency, and therefore recognised by higher education providers for entry to higher education.
