An Introduction to Highlands College

Highlands Delivering “First Class” Construction Degrees

All of the Construction Management and Architectural Technology degree students who have studied at UCJ Highlands have gained First Class Honours.

They are the seventh cohort of students to study for the courses on-island and will graduate in October from London South Bank University. The group of six gained their degrees in two years, impressively studying part-time whilst working full-time.

Nathan Clothier, a Construction Management student, was also awarded the Chartered Institute of Building [CIOB] Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Fund 2014 Award for his academic attainments.  Other students will receive recognition for their attainments from local professional institution branches and also the UK Professional Institutions that accredit the programmes.

Highland’s long term partnership with London South Bank University has been on-going for 14 years with seven student cohorts, 29 First Class Honours degrees and 82 graduates who are all eligible for Chartered and professional membership of the Chartered Institute of Building and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.

Highland’s is proud that it is able to contribute towards the construction industry in Jersey by providing degree level training on-island. This latest set of results is a firm foundation to build on, and the College looks forward to shortly welcoming the eighth cohort of students.

Further details about the Construction degree programmes and its feeder programme, the HNC Diploma in Construction, can be obtained from Tony Bechelet at
