HNC / HND

Apply for the HNC/HND Programme

Disciplines

  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering (including Operations, Instrumentation & Control)
  • Mechanical Engineering

Course Structure- HNC

From September we will be launching the HETA e-HNC. A blended learning approach to Higher Education. The duration of this course is 2 years. The majority of sessions will be delivered online, and students will be able to access these from home or their place of work. Students will be expected to attend the Hull training Centre for approx. 10 days throughout the academic year to complete activities such as induction, labs, guest speakers and presentations - appropriate social distancing regulations have been put in place. 

The online delivery will consist of teacher-led sessions, where two-way communications will be available, supported by handouts for the students to download and read or complete.  These live sessions will be, in most cases, recorded so that candidates can also access the information at their leisure to assist with the completion of projects and assignments or to catch up with any unavoidable absences. 

Students will also be supported by online tutorial sessions where they will receive individual support and guidance. Each student will be issued with a weekly timetable, the same as if they were attending on a day release basis, and attendance of these sessions will be recorded and reported to sponsoring companies. 

As the sessions are pre-recorded it is possible for your candidate to complete the qualification in a more open learning environment given a greater flexibility around their work schedule. We would ask you to keep us informed if this is yours or the students preferred options.
