What is expected of me?
You’ll be required to do the following:
- Attend lectures on a day release mode of study.
- Inquire at enrolment about government funding through our higher apprenticeships.
- Complete Assessments that are based on coursework issued throughout the 2nd year duration of the course.

What comes next?
Following successful completion of the HND, learners can progress to University to top up full degrees.
We have excellent links with local universities and can arrange taster sessions, open days and discussions with tutors at those organisations.
Alternatively, a Level 5 HND will be an ideal qualification to pursue a career in building surveying, site engineering, site management or Architectural Technology.
