For pupils in S6 only who can successfully studied at Higher level and are ready to progress to SCQF Level 7

Higher National Certificates (HNCs) and Degree modules are an excellent way for S6 pupils to enhance their study portfolio and skills for applications for Higher education. We offer the opportunity to gain the equivalent of the first year of a degree by completing one of our HNC courses, or evidence degree study and independent skills by studying one of our degree modules. We have more information and videos to explain this to you. 

Our HNC's and degree modules are available for online application this year and links will be available shortly.
