Higher Education at South Birmingham College Are you thinking about going to university, but are concerned about the cost, having to move away or don’t quite have the right qualifications? Higher Education courses don’t have to be studied at a university. At South Birmingham College we have a range of courses that can lead to a higher education qualification that will suit your learning needs and can help you progress into employment or university.

Higher Education courses are run in partnership with Birmingham City University. You will complete your studies at the college but you will be enrolled with the university and have access to all the facilities and services of both the college and the university. By choosing to study a higher education qualification you will benefit from being able to study locally in smaller class sizes than a university possibility at a lower cost. The good news is that you will still be able to progress through onto full degree programme onto the second or final year.

Foundation Degrees Foundation Degree courses are designed and delivered in partnership with employers. They provide the knowledge and skills required for the workplace and combine a mixture of academic study and workplace learning.

Higher National Diploma The Higher National Diploma also known as HND is a level 5 vocational qualification which provides both theoretical and practical knowledge in a particular sector. Completion of the HND can lead direct to employment or help you progress onto the final year of a full degree.

Higher National Certificate The Higher National Certificate also known as a HNC is similar to the HND in that it provides both theoretical and practical knowledge in a certain subject, but it may be a better option for part time study. Once completed you could even complete another year to top up to a full Higher National Diploma.
