Our courses run in six-week blocks and we offer up to six of these each calendar year. You will study a maximum of four blocks per year.
- 4 blocks will lead to a Foundation Year or an HNC (120 credits at level 4)
- 8 blocks will lead to an HND (240 credits at levels 4 and 5)
- 12 blocks will lead to an Honours Degree (360 credits at levels 4, 5 and 6).
This means that you will be able to pace your progress. Each learning block will require the equivalent of 300 hours of your time. Normally, 120 of these will be in class (or a mixture of in class and online) and the rest is completed away from the class. All study is guided so you’ll always have support.
Our Foundation Year courses offer an introduction to your chosen subject and are an ideal route to higher level qualifications if you did not achieve your desired grades or wanted to change subject area.
On the other hand if you do not have the necessary level 3 qualifications required to enter higher education our Access to HE courses could provide you with the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to progress to a degree.
