Access to Higher Education students excel once again at Exeter College 

Exeter College Access to Higher Education students have, once again, achieved amazing results, with many now set to progress to university-level courses at Exeter College and other institutions. 

Exeter College student, Jack Ford, explains that you must dedicate yourself to the course, and discusses its worth when you reach your goals. He said: 

“Working full time alongside studying the Access to Computing course was very difficult but with the support and belief of my tutors and structured consistency I was successful. I will continue to study at Exeter College and am starting the the HNC in Computing in September. I plan to work within the cyber security field after I finish college and have completed my higher-level qualification.”   

Exeter College’s Access to Higher Education Diplomas are well-established and a very successful route into university-level study for adult students who may lack formal entry qualifications and who wish to pursue a change of career and/or need to develop confidence and practice in their study skills. 

These diplomas can also improve general education and are specifically designed to help students progress on to professional advanced training.  

Suzy Bell is the Access to HE Lead at Exeter College. Commenting on this year’s results, she said: 

“Huge congratulations to all our Access to Higher Education students who have successfully completed their courses at Exeter College. They have achieved highly which has been reflected in outstanding grade profiles. We could not be prouder of our students and their many achievements. They have been a pleasure to teach, and we wish them the very best of luck for the future.  

“In addition, a huge thank you to all Access to Higher Education staff who have gone above and beyond their roles in order to help support and guide our access students.”
