5 Reasons to study at Highlands University Centre
Studying a University Foundation Degree at Highlands University Centre will cost significantly less than studying at most universities. Our fees for 2013/14 are between £5689 (for classroom based subjects, e.g Financial Services) and £6663 (for workshop based subjects e.g IT for Business). The majority of UK universities are charging £9000.
Our links with local businesses provide great opportunities for you to gain industry-relevant skills through our comprehensive work placement programme and improve your chances of employment at graduate level.
- Staying local
Studying locally is much more affordable than going away to university.
We want you to have the best possible experience when you study with us, so you can expect small classes and personal tuition, with easy access to dedicated, passionate tutors and lecturers.
You can benefit from our excellent facilities and staff; these major strengths help to create a friendly and purposeful learning environment.
Remember, for most of our courses, on successful achievement of your Foundation Degree you can enter the third year of an honours degree at Highlands University Centre or transfer to Plymouth University, subject to application and availability.
