We offer HNC’s/HND’s and Foundation Degrees with an option to convert them into a full honours degree at Craven College or another college/university. To ensure all of our courses are industry-relevant, we write them in consultation with employers to ensure that key professional competencies and wider employability skills such as project management and ICT are covered. Foundation Degrees last two years (full-time) though some courses offer a part-time study option over three years. It would then take a further year to convert your Foundation Degree into an Honours Degree (full-time)

HNC’s (Higher National Certificates) are nationally a recognised vocational Level 4 qualifications that combine practical experience and theoretical knowledge. Studying for a further year would lead to an HND (Higher National Diploma) which is equivalent to a Foundation Degree.
