What is an HND course?
The Higher National Diploma (HND) course is a two-year qualification and work-related course provided by institutions offering higher education in the UK. The Edexcel BTEC HNDs provide the skills essential for a range of sectors at Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) level 4 and level 5. Completing any of the level 4 and 5 qualifications will open the door to the next level of higher education at the best UK universities. They are focused on ‘learning by doing’ and are designed to give you essential work skills. Generally, HND degrees are equivalent to the second year of a university degree and – while the hands-on skills gained from a Higher National Diploma can head directly to the workplace – they are usually used as a key stepping-stone to a full degree.
On completion of an HND course, you can access the final year of any British university degree course, or directly enter the job market. The HND qualifications are professional courses that get you prepared for specific areas of today’s tough competitive job market with practical skills.
Why is an HND course worth considering as a career choice?
The higher national diploma (HND) qualification offers a great deal of benefits making it a very appealing and rewarding option for students.
