1. Choose when, how and where you learn
The Higher Education department has been split into three units, with specialist advisors for each unit, who have a detailed understanding to answer all your questions and fully support you through whatever course you choose.
Our Level 5 Higher Diploma courses are fully accredited by Edexcel. You have up to 2 years to complete your studies and upon successful completion you will be awarded dual certification from the College and Edexcel and will be awarded 240 credit points.
How do our Higher Education BTEC (HND)'s compare on the National Qualification Framework (NQF). Our Higher Education Level 5 Diplomas are equivalent to Level 8 in Scotland, Level 5 in Northern Ireland / England / Wales and Level 6 in Ireland.
The purpose of this subject syllabus is to provide learners with an opportunity to study the principles and applications of a higher education course at an advanced level (Level 5), with sufficient focus and detail to achieve transferrable skills, knowledge, understanding and application, necessary for progression towards related programmes at Level 6.
The subjects are unitised in order to provide flexibility of operation and study. Satisfactory completion of all units within this syllabus results in the award of 240 credits at Level 5. Each unit may be undertaken separately, and each will be assessed independently, however, it is a key requirement of the subject that all units attached to the syllabus are completed at a satisfactory level in order to achieve the diploma.
Higher Education BTEC diplomas should be targeted at those learners who have the ability to benefit from the course and progress to Level 6. They should also have success at level 3.
