Higher Education Courses


Our Higher Education qualifications (HE) provide both the practical skills you need to do a job and the theoretical knowledge your employer will expect you to have.

Our HE courses are NATIONALLY-RECOGNISED and awarded by leading awarding bodies such as SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) and CMI (Chartered Management Institute).

Our Diploma/HNC programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills required for success in current and future employment in a management and leadership role or progression to further academic and/or professional qualifications.

Higher National qualifications don’t just qualify you for work. Some Advanced Certificates allow direct entry into the second year of a degree programme, and some Advanced Diploma allow direct entry to the third year. Possessing an Advance Certificate or Advance Diploma can also give you entry to a number of professional bodies. So whether you want to go straight into a job, or continue your studies, getting a Higher National qualification is a good place to start.

We welcome applications from any individuals who are 18 or over at the start of the programme and have the ability to study at a higher level.
