Life-changing qualifications

Higher Level Qualifications and Degrees

We have a range of Full-Time and Part-Time qualifications that many students study alongside existing commitments, like work and family life. A 'Full-Time' degree can actually mean as little as one day a week and some courses – like our HNCs – are as short as one year in length. Thanks to Student Finance and the flexibility to continue working, many students find they're better off doing a degree than not.

Degrees with Foundation Entry

If you're worried about not meeting the entry requirements of a degree – don't worry. We offer Degrees with Foundation Entry – featuring an additional year of study to help you ease into university life. Each of these programmes has lower entry requirements – perfect for those with fewer formal qualifications who want to change their life for the better.

Higher Level and Degree Apprenticeships

If you believe an Apprenticeship route is the right one for you – you're in luck. We offer some amazing Higher Level and Degree Apprenticeships that allow you to benefit from work-based learning, while achieving a degree.
