Higher Education

Higher National Certificates (HNC) and Higher National Diplomas (HND) are Higher Education level courses - they are university level qualifications designed to give you specialist knowledge in your chosen field. Most of our programmes are two year full-time HNDs with the curriculum planned so that after the first year you could be awarded a HNC. These courses can also be taken part-time. We also offer some stand-alone HNCs, both part-time and full-time. Foundation Degrees are equivalent to the first two years of a Degree and combine vocational and academic study. These, as well as our Higher Nationals, can lead to top-up degrees at a university. 

We offer an alternative Higher Education experience to university. With us you will study in smaller groups with highly supportive tutors and more individual attention. Also, our H.E. courses are more affordable than you might think and work out a lot cheaper than studying a similiar qualification at University. 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. 

We offer a Progression Pledge to our Level 3 students. If you successfully complete the course we guarantee you the you the offer of a place on an appropriate Higher Education course with us.
