About this course


Course option

2.0years

Full-time | 2022

The Higher National Diploma (HND) is a Level 4 and Level 5 qualification made up of 240 credits. It is usually studied full-time over two years, or part-time over four years. Students undertaking an HND who fail to successfully complete the full qualification may be awarded an HNC if their credit achievement permits.

Teaching will be delivered online plus. Your full-time course will be a mixture of time spent in classrooms and then other time spent learning online. In-person sessions will be offered at our Waterloo centre.

To give learners maximum choice, we have adapted our curriculum to offer an Online Plus format of learning where the majority of teaching is delivered online with around 20% of in centre delivery. The Online Plus delivery model provides ample opportunities to engage with course material while developing vital transferable skills for online working. Our digital teaching and learning resources incorporate Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams and Moodle. Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide learners with a single robust, secure, and integrated system to create personalised learning environments.

The course will involve a range of teaching methods, including lectures, group discussions and tutorials. Learning is achieved through completion of written coursework, individual and group presentations, and role-plays. Your progress towards achieving the learning outcomes will be reviewed throughout the course. At the start of the course you will have an opportunity to discuss these with your tutor and set your own personal targets, linked to the learning outcomes and future goals i.e.: progression to another course.

Summative assessment is formal, structured and will be used to evaluate your performance at the end of each unit. Summative assessment is where students are provided with the assignment grades contributing towards the overall unit grade.
