Study, Assessment and Qualifications

A Higher National Diploma qualification is equivalent to a level 5 university qualification, for example a foundation degree and usually takes two years to complete in full.

There is continual assessment across the course including written reports, presentations, workshops and a final research project.

During your time on the course, you will be directed to carry out additional reading and other appropriate tasks alongside your time in the classroom and you should expect to spend additional time on your studies.

The course will be a combination of assessments, practical work and exams according to the specs of each unit.

Entry Requirements

At least 4 GCSEs at grade C (4) or above including English and Maths (or equivalent level 2 qualifications) plus one or more of the following:

- 48 UCAS Tariff Points from an appropriate level 3 vocational programme (e.g. BTEC National Diploma).

- A Level 3 Extended Diploma or GCE AS / A Level or a 6 unit Vocational A Level.

- Success in an Access to Higher Education Diploma.

- Formally assessed outcomes acquired through recognised prior learning or experience.

Applications from mature candidates are welcomed and considered on an individual basis.

Where English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent qualification will normally be required.

Applicants without the qualifications specified will be considered based on their ability to study the subject at the required level.

You may be required to attend an interview.

Additional Costs and Information

For some trips or visits, there may be additional charges that apply which you will be made aware of when and if appropriate.

The Office for Students (OfS), the new independent regulator for Higher Education in England, has confirmed that the college is successfully registered as a provider for Higher Education and that students are eligible for funding and student support from Student Finance England.
