At the University Centre, the main Higher Education qualification we offer is the Foundation Degree.
Foundation Degrees are well respected qualifications in their own right and develop specific expertise relevant to a particular sector of industry.
This includes key transferable skills such as learning skills, management of self, communication skills, ICT, numeracy skills, and academic writing.
Foundation Degrees are flexible qualifications and are designed to meet the need of employers for highly skilled, work-ready personnel. The qualifications are similar to Higher National Diplomas, but with added emphasis on work-based learning.
