Trying to get to university or looking to gain qualifications around your existing commitments? You can find the right way to study at Fife College.
The college offers both HNC and HND courses with part-time study options which are the perfect steps before progressing to university (and means that you can enter a degree course in second or third year, rather than starting at first year).
One student who went down the part-time route said: “Studying part-time at Fife College has been the perfect way for me to fit gaining a qualification around my work and family commitments – which is a big load off my mind!
“It’s great to be able to gain the qualifications I need to progress in my career without having to take time out of work.”
There’s a great range of HN, degree, and professional qualification courses on offer to study part-time, too – everything from Childcare, Computing, Business and Management to Accounting, Human Resources, Admin, Construction Management, and much more, so you’re sure to find the course that’s right for you.
And part-time can include day or evening learning, distance/online learning and open learning (you learn at your own pace in your own time, with some pre-booked on-campus learning) so it really can fit in with your life.
For those with the end goal of going to university, an HNC or HND is the same as the first and second years of a degree at uni – but without the high level of pressure.
Starting at college allows you to enter at a level that you feel comfortable at and progress one step at a time, gaining recognised qualifications each year along the way.
It can also help you develop independent study and research skills in a supportive environment that will equip you to progress to university when you are ready.
A student explained: “And the best part is, studying for my HNC and HND with Fife College allowed me to study locally, which kept my living, study and travel costs to a minimum!
“I also didn’t have to commit to more than one year at a time, which helped me to keep it manageable.”
So if you are going down the degree path, start your journey with Fife College.
