Advance your career in the computing, networking and cyber security industry

Take the next step in your career with a HNC or HND in Computing, Cyber Security, or Networking.

Courses designed to help you meet the demands of modern industry

Our HNC programmes offers you hands-on experience, and an industry-relevant curriculum taught by our expert tutors who are passionate to share their knowledge.

At the College, you’ll study in practical workshops and computing facilities, and enjoy tailored learning that is ‘HTQ approved’ and designed to meet the evolving needs of the computing sector.

HNCs and HNDs explained

Higher National Certificates (HNCs) are Level 4 qualifications, and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) are Level 5 qualifications. They fall between A Levels, T Levels and other vocational Level 3 courses; and Level 6 courses such as bachelor degrees.

Some HNCs and HNDs are classified as Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs). HTQs are 'quality approved' courses, recognised by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) to have met the knowledge and skills needed by the sector. They are marked by the HTQ logo.

Benefits of HNCs and HNDs

Cost effective, shorter study: As HNCs and HNDs are shorter than traditional degrees with a lower annual fee, they can offer a quicker and more cost effective alternative to study.

Independent Study: Apprenticeships and HNCs/HNDs are designed to the same standard, however each will suit different learning styles. A HNC/HND may be for you if you are settled in a job and do not feel you need additional pastoral support, or if you’re looking to train around your existing position.
