What exactly does 'higher education' and 'further education' mean in terms of qualifications?

am I right in thinking:

higher education = GCSEs

further education = A-levels

GCSEs are secondary education.

To put it in basic terms, HE refers to degrees (and similar) and FE refers to A-levels and diplomas (and similar).

A Google search for "what is the difference between further and higher education" revealed this.

Other way round.

not what the mcdonalds application form had on it


under higher education it gave me the option to choose what gcse grade I got for maths and english

and then under further education, it simply asked for subjects and qualifications :confused: ,

This is the sort of thing you need to create a new thread for . . .

But yes, I know someone who went back to uni in her late 40's, and a few people closer to your age

Further education = A-Levels, BTEC Level 3 etc.

Higher education = University degree.
