    Hello, college offers level 3 courses and access to higher education wich is also level 3.Difference is that level 3 duration is two years and HE only one year. Basically HE is a preparation for degree before university.But level 3 course does the same I think just last two years.Maybe in 2 years you will get more knowledge but still I think after that with only level 3 education will not be marketable in job market without a degree.

    So who can explain me the difference? Wich is better and why? Or worth it go for 2 years or is better to choose HE access?

    You have not posted in the right part of the forum, which is why you have not received a response.

    I have very limited knowledge of FE qualifications, but my understanding is that the Access to HE courses are more intensive and are obviously specifically geared towards preparing students for academia whereas regular Level 3 qualification are broader in order to give students a wider range of career options. It seems to me the 'best' route depends on whether or not you are certain you want to go to university and what your career ambitions are. It may be worth talking to an advisor at the college as they will be far more knowledgeable. Also, if you are committed to going to university, have a look at the entry requirements of the universities to which you are likely to apply and make sure that whichever route you pick meets their requirements.
