Having completed my Level 2 and Level 3 in Engineering at Bridgwater & Taunton College, it made sense to continue studying for an HNC at UCS. The engineering facilities are fantastic. The Advanced Engineering Centre is a brilliant resource, giving us access to the very latest technology. The fact I’ve come this far in my educational journey is testament to the brilliant teaching here.
Following this course you can look for work in a broad range of engineering occupations. Many graduates will join a Higher Apprenticeship or move straight into a senior role. Many graduates from the HNC course progress to study a Level 5 HND course (one-year) at University Centre Somerset before ‘topping up’ to a full degree. Others secure senior positions within leading engineering businesses as engineers, managers and project team leaders.
Students will progress on to this course having studied a relevant Level 3 qualification at a college or sixth form, e.g. A Level or BTEC Level 3. Applicants who are non-native English speakers, or who have not studied the final two years of school in English, must demonstrate a capability of English at a standard commensurate with IELTS 5.5, with a minimum of 5.0 being awarded on individual sections.
The course fee is £7800.00* per year of study.
