What are the benefits of studying a:



HNC/HND programmes are equivalent to the first two years of an undergraduate degree. 

They are created with employers to give you the skills you need to work in industry, meaning they are highly regarded by companies as an accredited professional qualification. 

This type of programme gives you hands-on experience and learning whilst giving you a taster of Higher Education learning at a fraction of the price!

Foundation Degree

Studying a Foundation Degree allows you to achieve a Level 5 qualification (the first two years of a university course) whilst saving on average £6,000 on tuition fees.

Over the two years of the Foundation Degree, you will complete work-based learning where you will work with an employer to put your new skills and knowledge into practice. 

At the end of your qualification, you can top up to a full BA (Hons). 

BSc (Hons) and BA (Hons)

This is the final qualification achieved after completing an undergraduate degree programme.

Typically, this is what you would achieve when going to university, but the benefit of studying with us is you can stay local and save on accommodation costs. You can also stay near to family/friends and some students even keep their part-time jobs. 

Level 4 Vocational Qualification

Our Level 4 Vocational Qualifications come in many different forms. We offer Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs), Level 4 Diplomas and Foundation Diplomas. If you are studying one of our Diplomas or Foundation Diplomas it is free if you are aged 18 at the start of your course!

Our Vocational offering is designed to provide students with specialised skills and knowledge. They provide a practical and focused approach to learning and are designed to develop specific skills within an industry. 

The curriculum design and frequent review of content means the qualification remains relevant to industry trends, which is especially important with the speed of technological advancements.

By combining classroom learning and practical experiences, completing a Level 4 qualification is great if you want to build your portfolio and confidence in a subject before moving on. You could use this course to put you in a great position for university applications, or you could take your knowledge straight into the workplace. 

The best thing about our Level 4 Vocational Qualifications is that if you are 18 at the start of your course it is free! That's right, you can gain a Level 4 (equivalent to your first year of university at no cost!). If you are 19+ you can still study this course and funding options may be available.
