Access to HE Diploma: Construction and Built Environment FT

An Access course is a nationally recognised alternative to A Levels and GCSEs for entry to British Universities and Colleges of Higher Education. The course offers excellent preparation for studying at a higher level and can increase your chances of future success.

At Halesowen College our Access programme is specifically linked to Birmingham City University, Newman University and Wolverhampton University. However, as part of the Open College Network, the qualification is recognised nationally, leaving you free to apply to the University of your choice. Even if you were to decide against progressing to higher education, we believe that you would find the course to be of great personal benefit.

This is an exciting new course that will introduce you to construction and built environment theory. The teaching team are passionate about construction and built environment and aim to provide you with a brilliant experience. You will be encouraged to think deeply, unpick your own ideas about construction and built environment and to work collaboratively with your peers to enhance learning.
