University Level

Our vocationally focused higher education courses can lead you straight to a career, or act as a stepping stone to a higher qualification such as a bachelor’s degree, if you go on to complete a ‘top up’ course.

We offer a range of HNCs, which are equivalent to the first year of university, and HNDs, which are generally equivalent to the second year of university. Students can also complete a Foundation Degree in a number of subject areas, which is equivalent to two thirds of a full honours degree.

Quick Facts

  • Foundation Degrees are fully flexible and can be completed through full-time or part-time study
  • Our higher education students benefit from small classes and cheaper course fees than at university
  • Many higher education students aged 19+ are eligible to receive an Advanced Learner Loan
