  • Have more hours of contact on a HND with tutors and specialists, currently it is 14 hours per week compared a much lower number at university.
  • You will have a comprehensively devised timetable that ensures your timetable is compressed so that you do not have hours between classes and will be in classes around three days per week.
  • You will be a part of a focused team in smaller classes rather than a number of a large group.
  • You will pay considerable amount less in tuition fees for the same level of academic engagement. See above link in fees section.
  • You will have a lot of opportunity to focus your study within your units to create work that interests you.
