When people imagine higher education students, they often think of those who have gone from A Levels or Level 3 courses at college and progressed straight to university.

In fact, that’s only part of the overall picture. Here at BSDC, we offer a range of HNCs, HNDs, Foundation Degrees and honours degrees run in partnership with universities, which provide a cost effective alternative to university for people of all ages and backgrounds.

  • What’s stopping you?

    You may have previously been put off studying a university level course because of family commitments, financial concerns or maybe you just feel that higher education isn’t within your reach. We’re committed to making university courses more accessible to people of all ages and circumstances. Our courses are not only cost effective in comparison to university, but provide you with the flexibility and support to make studying at a higher level accessible to you. 

  • What can I gain from a university level course?

    There are so many benefits of studying at university level:

    • Increased confidence and specialist knowledge
    • Gain the skills to pursue a new career or the drive to bag that promotion
    • A chance to study something you’re passionate about

Whatever your reasons for studying a university level course, by choosing BSDC you can be confident you’ll be nurtured and supported every step of the way.
