North London College


Degree & Professional Courses

In the current national qualification framework, courses leading to BA, BSc degrees are QCF level 6.  Courses at this level enable students to obtain knowledge, skills etc at the first degree standard.

Postgraduate courses are tagged QCF/NQF level 7.

The College’s educational philosophy is to enable students to earn where possible more than one qualification on a single programme.  On following one course our students may earn:-

  • Diploma – recognised by all authorities
  • Degrees – from a UK university
  • Professional – professional skills that can lead to membership of a UK professional body.
  • Work – a diploma that may enable students to obtain jobs while studying either part-time or full time.

Our programmes are aimed at developing the candidates to work, study and achieve recognised qualifications.

This approach is developed, at the moment, in the following areas:-

  • Accountancy & Finance
  • Business & Administration
  • Health & Social Care
  • Child Care & Education

The programmes are suitable for a number of people:-

  • Candidates wishing to obtain their degree qualification while studying near their homes
  • Candidates who start degree courses locally but transfer later to universities of their choice
  • Candidates who want to work while studying
  • Mature students – parents may study while their children are in school
  • Candidates who cannot afford the high fees at universities - our fees can be less than 40% of national fees
  • Candidates wishing to obtain their qualifications at a faster pace
  • Adult learners who would prefer a more mature learning environment
  • Candidates who want to obtain professional membership as well as a university qualification
