HNDs 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. You can top up to convert your HND into a degree with a further year of study.
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. For more information go to www.slc.co.uk
We are pleased to offer a bursary of £800 per year to all students who successfully complete each year of their HND programme.
We offer a number of HNDs in partnership with the University of Northampton. This means that you will become a member of both institutions. You will study at our Booth Lane campus in Northampton and can take advantage of University facilities and resources and Students’ Union membership for both organisations.
If you’re successful in achieving an HND, you may have the opportunity to progress on to the University of Northampton to top up your qualification to a degree and take part in the University’s graduation ceremony.

In addition, the College runs a number of HNDs that are accredited by Pearson Edexcel.
