Our Higher Education (HE) courses are for you if you want a degree-level qualification in your chosen career field and you meet the entry requirements (48 UCAS points and GCSE maths and English at grade 9-4).

We work in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire to bring you a range of higher education courses which are quality-assured, focused on helping you to realise your potential and to progress to higher levels and into work.  Our Foundation, Extended and Full Honours degrees are awarded by the University of Hertfordshire.

Our courses are available in the following areas:

  • (BA) Honours Degree in Business Administration
  • BSC Extended Degree in Science
  • HNC/HND in Sport and Exercise Science
  • Foundation Degrees in business management and computing technologies
  • Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (FAD)

You can download a copy of our latest prospectus for Higher Education here.


You’ll need to apply through the UCAS website using the course codes which you can find in the course description.


If you are 19+ and want to progress to HE but don’t have the traditional qualifications to get there such as A-levels, we have a range of access to higher education courses which are intensive one-year courses.  Please view our Access to HE courses here. We also offer a Pre-Access course which will give you the skills to enable you to progress to an Access course.
