Gaining higher level practical and vocational skills

Higher National Certificates (HNCs) and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) (BTEC Higher Nationals) – level 4 & 5 

Duration: 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time 

If you are looking for specialist vocational learning, then a Higher National Certificate (HNC) or Higher National Diplomas (HND) could be right for you, and we offer a variety of them at University Campus North Lincolnshire.

The emphasis is on developing your practical skills, specialist sector knowledge, and industry understanding to help you get a head-start in the workplace. 

HNCs take a year to complete and are equivalent to the first year of study of an Honours degree. HNDs take 2 years and are equivalent to the first 2 years of an Honours degree. 

Courses in Doncaster are accredited by nationally recognised awarding body Pearson, meaning our HNC and HND students benefit from this well-established curriculum delivered by industry expert staff.
