Save £1000s in fees

Many universities charge up to £9,250 per year. In comparison, our HNCs, HNDs and foundation degrees cost £6,165 (Sept 2020 entry), keeping the costs low without compromising on quality teaching.

Quality teaching

Our lecturers are highly qualified and bring years of industry experience and knowledge into the classroom. This means whatever you’ll be learning, will transfer into the real world and provide you with the skills employers are looking for.

Stay local

You can gain a degree-level qualification on your doorstep, without having to travel miles away from home, allowing you to fit your studies around your work and family commitments.

Strong partnerships with local universities

Our foundation degrees are run in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire providing you with more opportunities to stay local whilst gaining a university accredited degree.

Great student to teacher ratio

With smaller class sizes, individual feedback and more time with lecturers, the support offered to students is more personal and tailored around your individual needs.
