    Pathway to your Career

    Higher National Diplomas (HND) are typically courses that are undertaken by fresh high school graduates. Choosing to pursue an HND course helps to shift the students’ focus on a specific field of study which establishes a foundation for a career in the same industry, hence serving as a pathway. Upon completion of an HND programme students have the option to further their education and acquire a bachelor’s degree or kick-start their career at an entry-level.


    HND courses offered by Pearson are deemed equal to the first year of a bachelor’s programme by various credible universities. This means that post completion of their HND course, students have the opportunity to directly enrol into the third year of their chosen bachelor’s programme.
