Higher National Diploma
At GC we have Higher Education courses which offer something different. Students can select a one or two year full-time programme, normally starting in September.
Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) are at the same level, and are equal to two years’ study at university. HNDs prepare students for careers in specific types of industry. When finished, students can join the second or final year of a university degree.
Our strong industry links make us ideal to offer these types of course. There is a high level of support on offer, and fees are normally lower than studying at university. Find more about our social programme here.
