About Us

BTEC Higher Nationals are professional/technical higher education qualifications, recognised as equivalent to the first two years of an honours degree, which means you can top up to your final year and complete a degree more affordably. They are designed for you if who want to gain both recognition through higher education level study - and want to progress to the final year of an honours degree, AND if you want an industry-recognised qualification providing the skills and experience to support your progression in employment.  

BTEC Higher Nationals have been co-designed with industry, employers and professional bodies. They are therefore widely recognised by industry and higher education as the principal vocational qualification at Levels 4 and 5. Every year, over 100,000 students like you, from over 60 countries around the world, are studying a BTEC Higher National and finding success in both university and employment.
