Access to HE: Careers in the Health Industry

4th November 2021 Date of publication

Access to HE Diplomas in the Health sector are the most popular and well recruited across the country. The 2019-20 QAA key statistics show that 53% of Access to HE registrations were on Health Courses and Nursing is the top HE subject studied by students. With Nursing also being named as one of the employment growth areas for the UK this is likely to continue being the case.

One Awards offers providers the opportunity to create bespoke Diplomas to meet the needs of your learners and your LEP priorities. We have a large range of units that allow you to tailor Diplomas and titles. Centres are currently offering Health related Diplomas in:

  • Biomedical Science
  • Counselling
  • Health
  • Health Science
  • Psychology and Healthcare
  • Science

Our Diplomas are mainly composed of 9 credit units and this has led to students having a greater chance of achieving all distinction grade profiles which enhances progression to HE immeasurably. We believe that our 9 credit units allow students to ‘deep dive’ subjects which give them a greater knowledge and understanding that assists them to achieve the best outcomes. Our 9 credit units also mean less administration for our centres which allows more teaching and support time to your classes.
