Apply now: HE.​Team@​nottinghamcollege.​ac.​uk

If you’re look­ing to enhance your learn­ing and qual­i­fi­ca­tions, want­i­ng to progress in your cur­rent role or hop­ing to explore new employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties, then a degree-lev­el course could be a great option.

If you’re look­ing to kick-start the year with a uni­ver­si­ty-lev­el course, we have the fol­low­ing part-time High­er Nation­al Cer­tifi­cates (HNCs) with flex­i­ble starts.

Part-time HNC's

Choosing the right course for you

In response to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, we launched a suite of new HNCs last year, cov­er­ing a range of dif­fer­ent cur­ricu­lum areas — from Art & Design, Cater­ing & Hos­pi­tal­i­ty, Teacher Train­ing, and Sport to Busi­ness & Accounts, Com­put­ing, Per­form­ing Arts and Health & Social Care.

If you’d like to find out more, take a look at our full list of uni­ver­si­ty-lev­el cours­es, includ­ing a num­ber of Lev­el 4 HNCs and Lev­el 5 High­er Nation­al Diplo­mas (HND):

About the HNC

The full-time HNC pro­grammes can be com­plet­ed in just one aca­d­e­m­ic year, typ­i­cal­ly through study­ing two days per week. Alter­na­tive­ly, they can be spread over two years if done on a part-time basis (one day per week) for our Con­struc­tion, Engi­neer­ing and Teach­ing programmes. 

The HNC pro­grammes are a Lev­el 4 qual­i­fi­ca­tion, broad­ly equiv­a­lent to the first year of an under­grad­u­ate uni­ver­si­ty degree course, and are award­ed by the UK’s largest award­ing body (Pear­son).

The advantages of College vs. University

Many stu­dents are now opt­ing to reap the ben­e­fits of stay­ing local and study­ing for a uni­ver­si­ty-lev­el course in a col­lege envi­ron­ment. Here are some of the ben­e­fits to consider.

Kristopher Square Crop

Kristo­pher stud­ied the Com­put­ing HNC and HND at Col­lege. He want­ed to make his hob­by of com­put­er pro­gram­ming his full-time career, so he quit his job at Tesco and made the deci­sion to retrain to get the skills, expe­ri­ence and qual­i­fi­ca­tions he need­ed to make his ambi­tion a reality.

Financial support

Pound coins

Eli­gi­ble stu­dents can apply for a stu­dent loan to cov­er their tuition fees and a main­te­nance loan to help with day-to-day liv­ing costs from Stu­dent Finance England.

Not only that, the Col­lege is also offer­ing a Spe­cial Sup­port Bur­sary (Head Start Scheme) worth £1000 to those who study full-time on one of these cours­es, to sup­port them to do so (terms & con­di­tions apply).
