Higher National Certificates (HNCs)
If you have completed an A level or other advanced level course such as NVQ level 3, or you have extensive work experience in a related area and you wish to study further, then check out our higher national certificates. These are vocational in nature as they prepare you for careers in specific areas of industry.
Many of our HNCs have built-in progression to the final year of a foundation degree.
HNCs are attractive because:
- they are vocational and directly relevant to your work
- they will give you key transferable skills needed when you look for work in your chosen field
- if you do go on to study a foundation degree you will already be familiar with the College, its tutors and College life
- they are a safety net - you will have the qualification whether or not you are successful on a degree course.
