First of all, we should probably clarify what this ‘HE’ is that you might have heard about! HE stands for ‘Higher Education’, in which students study degree-level courses, such as BA or BSc degrees. ‘Degree level’ courses are those between levels 4-6 – so just the next step on the educational ladder after the level 3 courses that a lot of our students study; college is a great way of accessing these top-level courses.
It is a common myth is that you have to go to a university to study HE courses. Actually, it is very common for colleges, conservatoires, and other specialist schools to award degrees, and that’s no different here!
Canterbury College has a range of courses between level 4 and 6, from HND Art & Design to BSc (Hons) Animal Biology & Wildlife Conservation, specialising in subjects that ensure you hit the ground running in your industries when you graduate. Our two-year HND courses are also great if you are not ready to commit to a full three-year degree course yet. You can exit with an HE qualification after two years or go on to complete a full degree for a third year.
Also, studying a course at Canterbury College has the advantage of lower course fees compared to universities, meaning less worries about student debts, and smaller class sizes, meaning closer interaction with our industry-experienced tutors, whilst also being taught at our campus which is at the heart of the vibrant Canterbury city centre.
Applying onto a Higher Education course can be a daunting experience, but our website has a range of advice to help you from application to graduation. Contact us to find out more on 01227 811111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
