Our higher education courses are specifically tailored to the needs of employers – providing you with the essential skills you need to find a job or progress to an Honours degree.
West Herts College is part of the Hertfordshire Higher Education Consortium. We work in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire to bring you excellent teaching, outstanding facilities and great support right on your doorstep. All our Foundation degrees are validated and awarded by the University of Hertfordshire and our HNDs are awarded by Pearson (Edexcel).
So why choose us...?
Great courses: our range of Foundation degrees and HNDs are nationally recognised qualifications that you can achieve in two years and are highly valued by employers.
Well connected: Build industry contacts and make the most of great transport links - we’re only 20 minutes away from central London.
Financial support: Full and part-time HE students are eligible for a loan to cover the costs of tuition fees. For more information about HE loans visit Student Finance England. More information regarding support, including the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), can be found here.
You decide: Study two years for an HND or Foundation degree – add an extra year at university for a full honours degree.
QAA - the mark of quality HE: The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has confirmed the quality and standards. As well as being recognised for maintaining high academic standards and providing high quality information to our students, the review team commended the College for enhancing learning opportunities for our students.

In one term I have become more confident and can take what I am learning and implement it into my setting and inform my colleagues. So far the course is more than I expected and enjoyable.Kelly McDonald, FD Early Years
