hnd photographyHNDs are technical and skills-based and designed for specific types of jobs.

You could join a two-year HND programme right here at Northampton College that will cost less than going straight to university. In many cases you can top up to convert your HND into a degree with a further year of study. So, in three years, you can achieve two qualifications: an HND and a degree for less than the cost of one.

If you are planning to start a full-time or part-time higher education course at a university or college, you will be able to apply for a student loan from the beginning of the calendar year in which your course starts.
