Is an access to HE diploma worth it?Watch
I am a student at Sheffield Hallam about to go into second year for Politics however I've been thinking a lot more about my future and what my degree will be worth compared to others. This has lead me to start debating whether or not I should drop out of Uni and do an access to higher education degree to try and get into somewhere better. Would this be worth doing?
There's no point in dropping out to do an access course to try and "trade up" to a "better" university. You also may have issues with getting funding from SFE for a full degree if you do that. You would be best off focusing on doing very well in your current course to get a 2:1 or a 1st and actively pursuing every work experience/internship/placement/vacation scheme opportunity you can find. Between those two things you will be as employable if not more so than any other graduate.
