University-level study for adults

Can you picture yourself in your cap and gown already?

If you’ve already got a Level 3 qualification and want to study for a degree, Higher National Certificate (HNC), Higher National Diploma (HND), Higher Technical Qualification (HTQ) or a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship, we have lots of options available.

From Animal Care to Sport, Business to Construction, we offer a variety of interesting and rewarding courses to help you achieve your goals and get the career you want.

Barnsley College is a great place to study HE. We offer excellent facilities, expert tutors and we achieved an 92% student satisfaction rate in the latest NSS survey – that’s more than 15% above the national average.

Higher Education (HE) courses are subject to tuition fees but these can be paid via a Student Loan which is only repayable once you have completed your course and are earning above the income threshold (currently £27,295 per year). See our ‘Paying for your course’ page for further details.

You can see full details of all our HE courses in the HE section of our website or find out about our upcoming Higher Education open days by visiting our Events page.

Dreaming of studying a university-level course but don’t hold the qualifications you need?

Studying an Access to Higher Education (HE) Diplomas could help you get there.

Designed for adults looking to return to education, these courses are ideal for those looking for a career change, or those who have a wealth of industry experience but are looking to gain an official qualification to recognise their skills and knowledge. Visit our Access to Higher Education (HE) for more information.
