If i do one of those qualifications (HND or HNC or foundation degree), how would I convert or enter a degree program after the 1st or 2nd or 3rd year of a HND or HNC or foundation degree program?
Would employers like to see HND or HNC or foundation degree?
What's the difference between those three qualifications and a degree?
despite all the pretentious nonsense you hear spouted on here about having to go to a good tradtional uni and do a standard subject with your 6 A2 levels... in the future, doing something vocational will make you far more employable. i am doing an HNC in the evenings at the moment (a 2 year course - 6 hours a week after work) and there are people on that course with MAs and they cant find work, in fact everyone but me has a degree on th course. a degree just shows that you know stuff, an HND/C shows you can actually do it. study part time and get a relevent work experience post for during the daytime... that is what employers want. i am however starting a university degree in september, fingers crossed, to run alongside my HNC, but thats just cos i have nothing better to do. You can always transfer to uni after an HND though, provided its the right course. and HND ususally takes 2 yrs FT or 3 PT, and can get you onto the 2nd or 3rd year of a lot of courses... sometimes theres a direct link with the university.
Hope this has helped.
I have a question:
I am currently applying to the LEA for funding to help me pay my tuition fees for these, does anyone have any knowledge of funding for study?
Basicaly HND is the same as 2 years at uni on a degree course, also same as a Diploma of HE.
I'm not up on foundation degrees, as far as I know you don't need A levels and they are more practical than theory.
One of my friends was admitted onto an MSc with 'just' an HNC.
