Your 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.

We've built qualifications with the local job market in mind. Each of our higher education courses is relevant, hands-on and work focused. Whether you want to become a nurse, personal trainer, or entrepreneur, we’re here to help.

Types of qualification

We offer a range of qualifications at Mansfield for specific disciplines.

  • Bachelors degrees (or honours, styled as ‘Hons’) are Level 6 courses. We offer Bachelor of Arts, or BA (Hons) and Bachelor of Science, or BSc (Hons).
  • Foundation degrees are standalone Level 5 courses and are equivalent to completing two years of a three-year degree. We offer a range of subjects as Foundation Degree in Arts (FdA) and Foundation Degree in Science (FdSc). You can choose to extend your studies to achieve a full degree with a top-up degree.
  • Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) provide vocationally-focused training and skills for specific industries. Higher National Diplomas (HND) are Level 5 courses equivalent to two years of a degree. Higher National Certificates (HNC) are Level 4 and typically take about a year. Both routes offer the opportunity to top-up to a full degree. Find out more.
  • Top-up degrees are Level 6 Bachelors degrees that turn qualifications like foundation degrees or Higher National Certificates into full degrees, through an additional year of study.
  • Certificate in Higher Education (Cert HE) are Level 4 qualifications equivalent to one year of a degree, and typically related to a profession. These usually offer the opportunity to top-up to a full degree.
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (ProfGCE) are teacher training programmes in the lifelong learning (post-16) sector.
