University Courses

The decision to undertake a degree-level course is an exciting but daunting one. With high quality teaching and outstanding support, our Higher Education team is here to help you every step of the way.

Each of our students has their own personal goals and motivations. For some, it’s about improving their workplace skills and career prospects. For others it’s about returning to education after putting it on hold to raise a family. Whatever yours may be, our aim is to provide you with the opportunities, skills and knowledge needed to set you apart and to see you leave here with the confidence to pursue your passion and prepare for the next stage of your journey.

University Partners

We are working in collaboration with Bath Spa University and the University of Gloucestershire to continually develop our higher education provision and provide university accredited qualifications right here on your doorstep.

Free HP Notebook for all Higher Education learners

Each student who enrols on an HNC/HND at New College will receive a FREE HP Notebook to help with your studies. Not only that, but after completing the course, the device is yours to keep at no extra cost!

Higher Education Scholarship

The Higher Education scholarship scheme, set up by New College, aimed at widening participation in higher education from groups who are under-represented and who face potential barriers to accessing higher education opportunities.

Not quite ready for a degree?

Access to Higher Education Diploma

If you want to do a degree but don't quite have the right qualifications to meet the entry requirements, our Access to Higher Education Diploma can help.

Designed especially for mature students who have had a break from their studies (of 1 year or more), this qualification is generally accepted as an alternative to A-Levels and is combined with GCSEs.
