Post A-level programmes: practical details   

HNC/HND

Entry requirements

At least one A-level or equivalent (eg BTEC National Diploma) or relevant work experience.

Costs

British students and those from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) are likely to pay little for A-levels and equivalents, as the British government funds their study, but international students at a college can expect to pay from £3,300 to £4,150 per year.

How to apply

If you want to apply for a full-time degree, HND or foundation degree course, you’ll have to fill in a UCAS form. UCAS is the University and Colleges Admission Service and it deals with all higher education applications centrally.

Application timetable

The application process begins around March, when UCAS begin sending forms out to schools, and the deadline for UCAS applications is mid-December of the year before you want to go to university (eg December 2010 if you want to start in September 2011).

Foundation and access courses

Entry requirements

General education and a determination to improve English and academic skills. No set entry requirements for foundation courses – the institution offering the course will decide if a candidate is eligible.

Costs

British students and those from EEA countries are likely to pay little for A-levels and equivalents, as the British government funds their study, but international students at a college can expect to pay between £3,000 and £7,000 per year.

How to apply

Access and foundation courses often have specific selection criteria, and institutions may require details of previous study, work experience and career plans.

Full-time foundation courses which are taken at a university or college in the UCAS scheme will need to be applied for through UCAS.
