What our students say

Don't just take our word for it, here are some quotes from our successful A Level Students who have progressed to university and their dream careers all over the UK and the world!

I had a really good experience at QA. The tutors are really helpful and treat you like adults. I got really good support which helped me to get these grades and my place at University. I will be sad to leave.

Access to Higher Education - an alternative route into university

If you would like to go to university but left school without the qualifications you need, then an Access to Higher Education course could be for you!

Did you know that every year, over 200,000 Access to HE students achieve the Access to HE Diploma and progress to university courses throughout the UK and 90.5% of Higher Education leavers with an Access to HE diploma were in employment or further study six months after they completed their course?
