Our degrees explained
What we offer
Certificate in Higher Education
After one full year of degree study, you will achieve a Certificate in Higher Education. It shows you've developed your knowledge and research skills and have a good understanding of theory, practice and trends in your chosen subject.
A Foundation Degree is a two-year career focused qualification that is broadly equivalent to the first two years of a full degree. You will gain all of the employment skills and professional knowledge you need to help you land the job you want!
Our three-years Honours Degrees offer you a full degree (just like a university) and with so much practical experience and employer engagement, you'll be work-ready by the time you graduate.
Honours Degree (Top-Ups)
We also offer a wide range of one-year 'Top-Ups' which offer natural progression from a Foundation Degree to allow you to achieve your full Honours Degree, whether you want to do that straight away, or later on.
A Degree Apprenticeship is a three-year work-based qualification that combines invaluable on-the-job work experience with an Honours Degree. Designed in partnership with employers, you will be in full-time employment while training at Newcastle College University Centre.
