The Certificate of Higher Education is a level 4 higher education course which is the equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree course. This course is validated by Ulster University and, following successful completion of our programme, our students are eligible to apply to Year 2 of a number of Ulster’s BSc Honours Programmes including Psychology, Social Psychology, Sociology, Social Policy and Sociology and Criminology.  It is also a stand-alone qualification. Our students may also apply for Year 2 at other universities; however it is the student’s responsibility to check the admissions policies of individual universities.  Students who successfully complete the course may also progress to Further and Higher Education courses within Belfast Met, including HND and Foundation Degree Programmes.

This course is currently being revalidated and content is subject to change.




This course session is currently closed for enrolment/applications – it may be offered at a later date – please continue to check our website for updates.
