AHE Diploma films: students tell their own stories

This series of eight films, available on the QAA Access to HE website, highlights some of the stories common to the Access to HE experience and shows how the Access to HE Diploma helps adults get into higher education.  The films include a former painter and decorator who is now studying at Royal Holloway, University Of London, a single mum-of-three who is now applying to do an Applied Criminal Justice course, and a van driver who achieved his dream of becoming a social worker - all by doing the Access to HE Diploma.

“One Awards' innovative results service has been a fantastic development for universities and allows us to check students' achievement immediately ourselves. This is an excellent service which means that we are able to confirm student places quickly and effectively without having to follow up with providers and students or wait for results to be sent on to us. This is because their certification turnaround time of less than two days allows One Awards to process student results almost as soon as the colleges/providers have provided the final verified results. This really does help us put students at the heart of our confirmation process”.
