What qualifications are available at Harrogate College?

We appreciate no two people are the same, which is why we offer qualifications in a variety of subjects and levels to suit different interests, learning styles and circumstances. These include a range of post-16 options for 16-18 year olds, apprenticeships, degree-level courses and 19+ courses for adult learners.

Our diverse course offering means you can choose to study a:

  • Access to Higher Education Diploma – courses that prepare you for university if you don’t have traditional qualifications (eg. A levels or vocational Level 3 qualifications). These courses qualify you to go in just one year. Our subjects include health science, humanities and social sciences.
  • Vocational Level 3 Qualification – practical courses that give you relevant skills in a range of industries including marketing, fine art and interior design, science and digital. Our courses also provide UCAS points for university.
  • Vocational Level 4 Qualification – higher education courses for people who want to progress to the next level. For example, you can master your finance knowledge with a Level 4 accounting course.
  • Vocational Level 5 Degree – flexible entry-level degrees that further your career without studying a full degree. Available in subjects such as biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences; leadership and management; and games development.
  • Vocational Level 6 Top-Up Degree – a one-year course that complements your Level 5 qualification, bringing it up to a full undergraduate degree.
  • Vocational Level 7 Master’s Degree – acquire practical skills at postgraduate level with an MA in Creative Practice.
