    Okay so I have a few questions,
    Firstly, I want to do an Access to HE course online but am unsure where to find the correct one. I've looked on The open university which suggests it has the course, but it confuses me as it says it can be studied as a standalone or module. http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/do-it/access. Would it give me the right education? Would it be equal to studying the course in a real college.
    Secondly, once that is done would that qualification allow me to go to a real uni?

    Please and thank you!

    An Open University 'Access' module is NOT the same as an Access to HE course. You can use Open University modules to get into university, but you need between 60 and 120 credits at level 1 (see this list of modules). OU Access modules are level 0 - they are literally worthless.

    As far as I know the only place you can do online Access to HE courses is here: http://www.distancelearningcentre.com/courses.php
