If you’re thinking about higher education, university may not provide you with the flexibility you need. HRC can offer you a variety of flexible options so you can study at a time that suits you and benefit from smaller class sizes. What’s more, our tuition fees can be considerably lower than university.

So whether you’re looking for further study after finishing at sixth form or college, or if you’re already working and want to take your career to the next level, our range of degree-level courses will help you gain the advanced knowledge you need to move on or move into industry.

HRC's range of Higher Education options are validated by University of Hertfordshire, University of Greenwich and Birmingham City University. We offer Foundation Degrees, Extended Degrees and Higher National Diplomas/Certificates (HND/Cs) at Levels 4 and 5 which are equivalent to one or two years of an honours degree. Both Foundation Degrees and HNDs can be topped up to a full degree (such as BA and BSc) with additional study at university.
