Study, Assessment and Qualifications
A Higher National Diploma qualification is equivalent to a level 5 university qualification, for example a foundation degree. This particular HND is also a Higher Technical Qualification (HTQ) which means it has been mapped to an occupational standard which has been developed by employers. This means the qualification will contain the knowledge and skills development to support entry straight into industry.
This level 5 course will be delivered using a blended approach of both class-based sessions and remote learning. This course is assessed using a range of assessment strategies. Practical sessions are due to take place in our newly developed Business School with specialist equipment and software provided.
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.
