Higher National Certificate (HNC)
What is an HNC?
A Higher National Certificate (HNC) is a level 4 practical and hands-on programme designed to help you get ready for employment while giving you the essential skills and experience needed to do so.
An HNC offers you:
Key skills and experience in your chosen field
Practical learning designed to get you ready for work
Ways to refine your existing skills to excel you further in your career
Opportunities to work with local employers
A taste of university life
More cost-effective compared to a traditional university degree.
An HNC is a 1-year full time or 2-year part time programme, equivalent to your first year at university. The part time programme is great for people with pre-existing commitments, offering flexible hours so you can study at your own pace. The programme is also perfect for students who want to have that first-year university experience without the full three-year commitment. If you desire, you can continue your studies onto a second year of a bachelor’s degree.
Who’s it for?
HNC programmes are for everyone, but could be more useful to:
Students leaving school who are unsure about their next steps, and don’t want to commit to a full degree
People who want to fast track themselves into the world of work
People already employed, who want to progress further in the career ladder
Students who prefer more practical courses as opposed to theory.
Why apply for an HNC?
HNC programmes will give you the tools you need to develop, improve and refine your career. Skills learnt will be transferable to working environments, and opportunities to work with local employers will broaden and strengthen your existing connections. HNC’s are highly valued by employers and are quickly becoming popular across the UK.
