What is Higher Education?

Higher Education refers to the qualifications studied after and above the completion of level 3 study (A levels and BTEC Extended Diplomas, for example).

There are many Higher Education qualifications: degrees; foundation degrees; degree apprenticeships; and Higher National Certificates (HNC) and Diplomas (HND).

There are over 400 Higher Education providers in the UK including universities, colleges with Higher Education provision, and specialist institutions such as conservatoires. Altogether they provide over 50,000 courses and along with the growing number of employers providing higher level or degree apprenticeships; there really is something for everyone!
