Overview

Are you thinking of applying for a degree in humanities or social science but don’t have the right qualifications you need for university? Don’t worry – this Level 3 Access to Higher Education Diploma in Humanities is the ideal way to develop the foundational skills and relevant grades you’ll need.

You’ll cover a wide range of topics and units on this year-long course, focusing on two core subject areas: English and History. You could be looking at Renaissance History one day and then be learning how to appreciate a novel the next. As you explore poverty in contemporary Britain and race in society, you might also be studying the Atlantic Slave Trade and the Industrial Revolution. You’ll also get the chance to focus on both poetry and plays, and how to write creative fiction.

As you balance a number of simultaneous assignments and deadlines, you’ll be developing the important skills and abilities that are valued by university admissions tutors and potential employers. This includes being able to write academic essays, complete reliable research, and critically analyse documents, all of which you’ll learn on this Access Diploma as you prepare for university.
