Higher Education Routes

Higher education refers to any qualification studied at Level 4 or above. You can revisit our Introduction to Higher Education here

There are many different higher education options to help you reach your goals. You can study a number of different courses at colleges and universities across the country and choose from a wide range of subject choices. Each course at each institution will have different entry requirements, so you can pick the qualification types and the route through education that suits you best. Entry requirements are the grades of qualifications you may need to hold to progress to the next step in your education, they may also include work/voluntary experience.
