Access to Higher Education

Access to Higher Education

If you’ve been away from education for some time or didn’t quite achieve your College qualifications, an Access to Higher Education course will give you the confidence and skills to take that next step to start a degree or equivalent University level course.

Buxton & Leek College is proud to be part of the University of Derby, which is particularly beneficial for our Access to Higher Education courses. You can study an Access to Higher Education Diploma at the University of Derby Kedleston Road Campus in Derby, as well as our College campuses in Buxton and Leek.

If you are aged 19 or over, you may be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan to pay for your Access course. You won’t have to pay anything up front and you also won’t need to pay anything back until you are earning a £21,000 salary. Contact us for more information.

In order to apply for an Access to Higher Education course, you must attend an information event at either our Derby, Buxton or Leek Campuses.
