into HE

A new QAA database "provides the only definitive published list of QAA-recognised Access to HE courses."

The latest QAA ebulletin announced a new web service called access to HE @ URL:

http://www.accesstohe.ac.uk/ - it's been created in conjunction with UCAS.

What I find slightly disturbing, is that it seems to replicate the excellent ALPS tool that Aimhigher created fairly recently @ URL :


Both seem to do the same job i.e. showing potential undergraduates what courses are on offer. Tho' the ALPS tool went down the route of careers aspiration, then matching courses to achieve that. Or are they two different beasts? Someone let us know.
