About Your Diploma

For anyone keen to pursue a degree in sociology, psychology, history, or other subjects related to social sciences or humanities, gaining foundational knowledge will put you in a strong position ahead of your university studies.

The Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science and Humanities) is a Level 3 qualification that not only provides you with essential knowledge but is the equivalent of 3 A Levels. This means that if you don’t possess traditional qualifications to get into university, then an Access to Higher Education Diploma is a solid alternative.

Most universities accept this qualification as part of their entry requirements, but you should check with your chosen establishment beforehand. If successful, you will have a base of knowledge of which to build upon thanks to the diverse units you will cover while studying for your Access to Higher Education Diploma.

From forensic psychology and various sociological strands to crime and deviance and political ideologies, you will explore topics across the spectrum, making this qualification incredibly useful for aspiring professionals in the social science and humanities fields.

As well as delving into sector-specific subjects, you will also learn a range of essential study skills that will get you prepared for degree-level study. An Access to Higher Education Diploma is ideal for individuals that want to go to university and be as prepared as possible for the next chapter of their academic career.

Getting Started

To help keep you on track with your studies, you will be given an Individual Learning Plan (ILP), which will detail the submission deadlines of your assignments, creating a clear schedule for you to follow. The course is delivered entirely online, so you can learn from the comfort of your own home.

You have a level of freedom that does not come with classroom learning, and while there are deadlines to meet, you are able to fit your study time around your existing commitments. As soon as you enrol on the course, you will be given instant access to all the course materials you need.

Our student portal has everything neatly organised for you in one place, and you will benefit from the expertise of dedicated tutors and our Access Support Team.

Unlike A Levels, in which you need to study for around two years to achieve the qualifications, you can gain your Access to Higher Education Diploma in less than a year! When you enrol, you have two years to complete the course, but learndirect students take 9 months, on average, to achieve their qualification.
