Service personnel and their dependants
Education plays a key role in achieving successful and rewarding employment, and for many students the Access to HE Diploma has given them the opportunity to change career or to progress into the job they always wanted. It provides a supportive, encouraging and challenging environment to help adults make the transition to higher education. Find out more by reading real life stories of former Access to HE students, like Dr Mark Field, a former Chief Petty Officer in the Royal Navy.
The Access to HE Diploma is a qualification that prepares people to succeed in higher education by providing them with the necessary skills, subject knowledge and confidence in a supportive and encouraging environment. Each year around 25,000 students successfully complete an Access to HE course and are accepted onto higher education courses.

Service personnel information project
QAA is working with TESRR colleagues, military charities and resettlement support organisations to improve information about Access to HE specifically for Service personnel and their dependants. We are looking to respond positively to recommendations from research by Dr Mel Macer of Bath Spa University (PDF, 2.3MB).
