Our high-quality HND courses provide you with the skills you need to succeed, whether you want to go to university or get into the world of work. They are equivalent to one or two years at university and cost less than university fees. They are also highly valued by employers. Many of our HE graduates go on to enter BA and BSc Honours degrees in the second or third years at university and we have links with a range of local universities including Brunel, Bucks New University and University of West London.

We offer:

  • University-level courses without university costs – so don’t let high fees put you off studying. The fees for our high-quality courses are below the UK average so you can take advantage of a cost-effective way to study, without compromising on quality. 
  • HNC/D qualifications, accredited by Pearson, which you can top up at university to gain a full degree
  • Teacher Training qualifications (DET) are offered for those wishing to teach in the post-16 sector, which are accredited by Canterbury Christ Church University
  • Combine practical skills with theory giving you the knowledge and hands-on experience demanded by employers
  • Lecturers with the industry expertise to enhance your learning
  • The support you need to help you find your way through the challenges of studying while you may be working, looking after a family or juggling your finances.
  • HE qualifications on your doorstep, so you can avoid the expense of relocating to university and finding the money for living costs, by studying locally. 
  • A convenient way to study our courses are usually held over two or three days per week, giving you the opportunity to combine your study with your personal commitments.
  • The opportunity for you to develop many skills including: self confidence, communication skills, flexibility, an analytical mind, self-motivation and personal organisation.
