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.

Read real life stories of ex-Service personnel who have completed Access to HE qualifications to see how it has changed their lives. People like Dr Mark Field and Tommy Sharpe.

The Access to HE Diploma is a qualification that prepares people to succeed in higher education by providing them with the academic 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. Our FAQs section can answer most questions, but if there's something that you can't find the answer to, please contact us.

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).
