Take your first step towards an Engineering degree with Fife College
An HNC is the same level as the first year of a university degree, and an HND is the same level as the second year. This means that you could progress straight to second or third year at university when you've completed your college course.
- Beginning your degree at college can be cheaper than going straight to university, saving you money on living away from home
- Studying your first two years of a degree at college gives you more flexibility, as you finish each year with a recognised qualification. So if a job opportunity comes up you can return to study the rest of your degree at a later date with qualifications already in the bag!
- Class sizes at college tend to be smaller and provide a bit more personal support
Starting your engineering degree at college gives you options and allows you to take the path that is most suitable for you. So if you want study for your degree but are concerned about time, costs, choosing the wrong discipline, or committing to four years of continuous study, why not keep it local and start your studies at college.
“At the moment, I’m at the College five days a week; three days in the workshop and the other two in the classroom. I think it’s good that I’m able to mix them both together."
