Borders College

A Stepping Stone to University

Important Notice:

Borders College promotes known progression routes to other colleges and universities. Students who wish to pursue a progression opportunity should first clarify the latest entry requirements for that organisation before committing to any course of study with us. In addition, a university may change the entry requirements for advanced entry during the delivery of your chosen course and the College may not be able to change that course content within the recruitment timeframe.  Borders College has no control over entry requirements or any changes to entry requirements for courses at other colleges or universities.

Borders College can offer a range of Higher National Qualifications that can allow you direct entry to degree programmes.  They can also provide you with knowledge and understanding that can be transferred to other qualifications too.

On completing an HNC or an HND, you can often go straight into the second or third year of a degree (Advanced Entry). 

Universities welcome applications from college students appreciating the breadth of experience and commitment to learning gained in a particular area.

Guaranteed Advanced Entry Places

There is an exciting new opportunity at Borders College where programmes are designed to enable successful students the chance to progress directly onto guaranteed advanced entry places from the HND Business course and the HNC Electrical Engineering course.

If you have a degree in mind it is worth contacting the university to enquire into progression or articulation opportunities from a Borders College HNC or HND.
