Gary’s Story


The Access to Higher Education Diploma allows students without a level 3 qualification, such as A-levels, to have the opportunity to realise their ambitions and attend university. Many students that have studied with EThames Gradaute School have gone on to study at a number of universities across the UK.

Gary Yearwood completed his Access to Higher Education course this year and now plans to attend university.

“I didn’t think I would make it this far.”

“I chose  to do an Access to Higher Education course in Computing because I wanted to study Computer Science at university.”

“My Access to HE course prepared me for studying at university by teaching me how to analyse information and write what I have found out in my own words. The course really taught me to study independently.”

“The course taught me to be ambitious and to believe in myself. I now have a deeper understanding of the computing industry.”

Gary now plans to attend the University of East London to study Computer Science.

At EThames, we specialise in four different Access to HE courses that cater to different industries, including:

Each of our courses cater for different interests and industries. The qualification is awarded by OCN London, and is overseen by the QAA (Quality Assurance Agency for England and Wales).
