College to University

The college to university route offers an alternative onto degree courses at university. Increasingly, Higher National Certificates (HNC) and Higher National Diplomas (HND) can enable students to progress into year two or three of a university degree. 

The College even offers some degree level options. For example, Edinburgh Napier University’s BA Business Management is taught at West Lothian College. Students can gain direct entry into year 3 of this degree by completing our HND Business course.
