Higher National Certificates/Diplomas
Our Higher National Certificates (HNCs) are work-related higher education qualifications which will give you the work-related skills and experience for your chosen industry.
Choosing to study for an HNC at the College means you'll be paying almost half the cost of studying at university. An HNC is equivalent to the first year of degree study and on completion you can progress to a Higher National Diploma (HND), the second year of a degree or go straight into employment.
