Higher Education

Hopwood Hall College has been providing locally based higher education and professional programmes for many years. We appreciate that you may have been out of education for a while and provide a range of full and part-time qualifications to get you started on your higher education learning journey. These include:

  • Access to Higher Education
  • Level 4 qualifications
  • Higher National Certificates (HNC)
  • Higher National Diplomas (HND)
  • Foundation Degrees

At Hopwood Hall College we are dedicated to providing high quality Higher Education (HE) provision to all. We believe that anyone with the necessary ability should be able to progress to HE and as such the College is committed to providing equal access to all regardless of background, gender, age or any other factor. Read our Access and Participation Statement here.

Many of our successful students have told us that they enjoy studying at Hopwood Hall because our classes are smaller than those in universities and they benefit from close expert teaching and excellent support from tutors. Students also feel that they are part of a small and closely knit community.

To support progression to even higher levels of study, the college has a number of partnerships with higher education institutions. These include the University of Salford, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Bolton, and many of our students continue their education with them after completing their studies at Hopwood Hall. Our planned courses, starting in September 2017, include:
