Trying to get to university or looking to gain qualifications around your existing commitments? Find the right way for you to study at Fife College!

Part-time can mean day or evening learning, distance/online learning, or open learning (you learn at your own pace in your own time, with some pre-booked on-campus learning) – whatever works for you! It really can fit in with your life.

Explore HNC and HND courses

If you’re planning to go to university, an HNC or HND are the same as the first and second years of a degree at uni – but done locally and at a pace that suits you.

Starting at college allows you to enter at a level that you feel comfortable at and progress one step at a time, gaining recognised qualifications each year along the way.

It can also help you develop independent study and research skills in a supportive environment that will equip you to progress to university when you are ready.

A student explained: “And the best part is, studying for my HNC and HND with Fife College allowed me to study locally, which kept my living, study and travel costs to a minimum!

“I also didn’t have to commit to more than one year at a time, which helped me to keep it manageable.”

So if you are going down the degree path, start your journey with Fife College.
