COVID-19 Update for Access to HE Diploma students

QAA Update 26 March 2020

We know that, as Access to HE students, many of you were already engaged in a tricky balance between work, family responsibilities and study. In the current uncertainty, we understand that you want clarity as soon as possible about what’s happening with your courses, what you need to do, and how you will receive your results.

Our priority is to support students during this time of uncertainty. We want to reassure you that we’re in discussion with the Department for Education, Ofqual and others to publish a clear and consistent approach to assessment as soon as possible, and in a way that is fair to you all in these unprecedented circumstances. We are sorry this is taking longer than we had hoped for but we are working to get information to you as soon as we can.

We’ll provide a further update on the Access to HE website next week. 

In the meantime, students and providers should also follow the current guidance, which is available on our website.
