Why Choose Open Awards?
  • We love Access to HE as much as you!
  • We already have an established Open Awards Access to HE Family - A network of Access to HE Providers who regularly come together to share best practise and support each other.
  • Our prices are competitive and due to the current situation, if you decide to deliver Access to HE with us, we will waive your annual fee.
  • Complementary services such as: New Access to HE Programme Development / Validation, Revalidation of Programmes, Amendments to Programmes, Programme Transfer from another Access Validating Agency and Credit Transfer are all available free of charge to Open Awards Providers.
  • We appreciate that you don’t have time for paperwork and are busy supporting your learners, so we have made our processes as simple and streamlined as possible. The majority of what we do is run via our quartz web portal which you may already be familiar with.
  • We continue to develop new and exciting diplomas including: Forensic Science; Business Management in Maritime and Logistics; Early Years; Law, Politics and Society; Psychology and Mental Health
