Course Overview

This is a programme leading to Higher National Certificate in Computing (university first year equivalent) awarded by Liverpool John Moores University.

This award is available through full- or part-time study and timetables are designed to minimise the number of times that a student would need to travel to College.

On completion of the HNC, students may progress to top-up to one of the following awards:

FdSc Computing
FdSc Computer Programming
FdSc Cyber Security and Networking
FdSc Computer Information Systems

It will not be necessary to select your pathway at the time of application, this can be selected later in discussions with the programme team.

The full-time fee for this programme is £7725. Part-time fees are charged in proportion to the volume of study undertaken, if this programme is taken over two years the fee would be £4120 per year.
