Your new path to a great future

Maybe you’re looking for a different route into higher education, or a taster for uni life. Maybe work or care commitments mean you’re wanting to study closer to home. Either way, our partnership with VWNC could be your perfect solution.

We’ve built these degrees with the local job market in mind. Each of our courses is relevant, hands-on and work focused. Whether you want to become a web developer, personal trainer, care worker or entrepreneur, we’re here to help.

Where is Mansfield?

It's 14 miles north of Nottingham – easily reached by car, bus and train.

What is a foundation degree, and am I eligible to study?

Foundation degrees focus on a specific job or profession. You’ll build important knowledge and technical skills during your two-year course. Once you’ve finished, you can top up your qualification to a Bachelor’s-level degree – or move straight into work!

Entry grades are also lower for foundation degrees, giving you more leeway to get started. All our courses require DDE at A-level, or MPP in your diploma. You’ll also need grade C/4 in GCSE-level Maths and English. Some subjects have additional requirements, so visit our course pages for more detailed info.

What about the cost?

There’s funding available for each course, plus our £925 Mansfield Scholarship Award. Email us or call 0115 848 2494 to find out more about student loans and bursaries.
