Many universities now allow advanced entry onto the corresponding second year of a degree. Some universities have direct articulations on to the second year of a bachelor’s degree programme, i.e., the HNC is equivalent to the first year of university. (Students should be aware that university admission criteria are always subject to change and understand the course entry requirements for subject, year, and grade before applying). After completion of the course, students can progress to the Level 5 Higher National Diploma in Engineering, equivalent to the second year of university.
