Study options

Further Education

Our Further Education courses will prepare you for university or employment. These are normally one specialist subject studied alongside maths and English.

Higher Education

These are advanced qualifications that can go up to degree-level, either Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) or a full a degree. HNDs can be topped-up to become a degree through further studies.

Fee eligibility

How much you pay in course fees will depend on whether you are a Home Student or an International Student.

If you do not know whether you are a Home Student or an International Student we can help clarify this.
