Progress To A Degree

Did you know that an HNC or HND qualification is the equivalent of first year (HNC) or second year (HND) of a degree at university?

So depending on the subject studied, successfully completing an HNC or HND at Fife College could mean that you have the opportunity to progress on to Year 2 or 3 of a related degree course at university. 

In this area, on successful completion of an HND in Fitness, Health and Exercise or Sports Coaching and Development, we offer articulation routes to years 2 or 3 of a related degree at the following universities:

Abertay University

Open University

Robert Gordon University

University of West Scotland
