Success in higher education shows that you have many of the skills and qualities that employers value, including: commitment, practical skills and knowledge, enquiry skills and initiative, communication skills, confidence and maturity.
More students are choosing to study higher education in their local college to help reduce the costs of accommodation, travel and tuition fees (which are £2,000 a year less at Central than at universities). The uniqueness of college-based higher education is also about the smaller teaching groups, closer access to tutors and supportive teaching methods.
College higher education also offers flexible study routes with part-time options and two-year qualifications that can be topped up to a full honours degree, often at the local universities. So you really can have the best of both worlds.
