We offer an exciting range of Higher Education courses at CONEL that are designed to take you to the next level. We offer impartial information, advice and guidance every step of the way to help you get one step closer to your life goals.

Many of our courses are validated by highly respected universities and our progression partnerships in education and industry can help you to move on to work-related employment and graduate or postgraduate study. This could be through one of our Access to Higher Education, work-related Level 4 or 5 courses, or one of our foundation degrees.

You will also be able to study for our higher education courses part-time, so you can work and manage your other commitments. Fees with us are typically less than HE courses from universities too so you can achieve a university-level education that's local and affordable.

Access to Higher Education Courses

Access courses are aimed at people who want to go to university and either do not have A Levels or have been out of full-time education for some time. Each university has a mimimum number of UCAS points required to study for one of their degrees. You need to be aged 19 or over to study for an Access to Higher Education Course.

Your Access to Higher Education Learning Loan will be written off if you successfully complete your (subject related) university degree, which means you won't have to repay it!

If you are aged 19-23 and your Access to Higher Education course is your first Level 3 qualification, your study will be FREE!


Higher National Certificates/Diplomas

We have recently introduced HNCs (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. We currently run an HND in Creative Media Production: Games and Animation.
