What Can You Study?
We offer a number of university-level courses all offering fantastic progression, support and excellent facilities. Studying whilst living at home could give you a head-start, both financially and in your career.
A Higher National Certificate (HNC) is equivalent to the first year of university level study, delivered full-time in 1 year or part-time over 2 years. A HNC can allow progression onto a Higher National Diploma.
A Higher National Diploma (HND) is equivalent to the second year of university level study and can be delivered full-time or part-time. If you have already completed a HNC in a relevant subject, you can apply directly for the HND.
Higher Apprenticeships are work based programmes which include the study of a recognised level 4 or 5 qualification. They take at least a year to complete but can take up to 4 years depending on the qualification.
