Higher Education means courses at Level 4 and above. This includes Higher National Certificates and Diplomas, and Foundation Degrees. Our College has close links with employers to ensure you gain the skills and experience to progress into employment within your chosen industry.

We also have a progression agreement with local Universities, allowing you to enter the final year of a Degree programme after the completion of a Foundation Degree or Higher National Diploma with us.

Higher National Certificates & Diplomas (HNCs & HNDs) are Higher Education level courses - they are University level vocational qualifications designed to give you specialist knowledge in your chosen field. Foundation degrees are the equivalent to the first 2 years of a Degree and combine vocational and academic study - they can be ‘topped up’ with a final year at University to convert into a full degree.

Our H.E. courses are more affordable than you might think. With nothing to pay upfront, you will only have to pay back your tuition fee loan once you are earning a minimum of £21,000. For example, if you were earning £22,000 per year the repayment on a tuition fee loan might work out at just £7.50 per month. Click here to find out more.​

We offer a Progression Pledge to our Level 3 students. If you successfully complete your course with ABB or equivalent grades, we guarantee you the offer of a place on an appropriate Higher Education course with us. This is subject to a satisfactory interview, reference and application.
