ADULT LEARNING PUBLIC HEALTH Level 3 Diploma

  • Level 3
  • Further Education
  • Newry Campus
  • Ulster University

Overview

The overall aim of the Access Diploma in Adult Learning is to provide a sufficiently broad education for adults who have few or no appropriate qualifications to enter Higher Education. It is a unique programme that provides a ‘second chance’ route into Higher Education for those who have missed out on earlier opportunities and allows students to build upon their life experiences.

For the purpose of admission to higher education, successful completion of the Access Diploma is accepted by both Universities in NI (QUB and Ulster University) as meeting the General Entrance requirement for GCSE Mathematics and English Language at grade C and meets the Level 3 tariffs that will satisfy entry requirements to many Higher Education programmes. However, it should be noted that an Access Diploma is not equivalent of GCSE Mathematics or English Language and employers or other academic institutions outside NI may not accept this qualification as equivalent to GCSEs and A-Levels.

An exit award of Certificate in Adult Learning is also available on successful completion of 60 credit points at Level 2.

The primary aims of the exit award are to:

  1. Provide encouragement to adult learners through a well-structured and supportive programme.
  2. Give students experience of different methods that may be used to develop and assess their learning.
