University

At university or college, you can get valuable qualifications and skills to help you reach your chosen career.

You can access a wide range of courses/ qualifications such as degrees, foundation degrees and higher national diplomas. A lot of these courses are taught at university but plenty are also taught at college too, as well as specialist providers such as, business schools, conservatoires and agricultural colleges.

You can study full time or part time and access distance or blended learning as well as accelerated degree programmes.

Find out more about university from our resources below and if you have any further question don’t hesitate to get in touch with our coordinators using our instant chat feature.
