How will you learn it? ×

Our Certificate of Higher Education (Cert HE) courses are designed for learners who either:

  • want to study for a degree but don’t yet hold the entry requirements for a full degree programme, or
  • do not want to commit to a full degree programme at this point but would like a level 4 undergraduate qualification equivalent to the first year of a degree.

The course will allow you to experience university-level study, equivalent to the first year of a degree gaining both subject knowledge and developing personally through the first stage of our Target Talent Curriculum. Upon successful completion of the course, you can leave with a Certificate of Higher Education. Alternatively, you may wish to apply to progress to the full degree programme at UA92.

A student registering for a Certificate of Higher Education can still complete a degree within 3 years.
