Higher Education

Higher Education courses include Degrees, Foundation Degrees, HNDs, HNCs and Higher Level Apprenticeships. 

Belfast Met offers a selection of Higher Education (HE) courses that are closely aligned with industry demand and run in conjunction with top UK education providers.

Our HE partners include Queen’s University Belfast, Ulster University, the University of Dundee and Pearson Edexcel. We also offer a range of professional and technical awarding organisation programmes including the Institute of Leadership and Management, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

All of our HE programmes face the same rigorous external checks and audits as a university programme as we are all assessed by the Quality Assurance Agency. But, as you’ll experience, Higher Education in the College is also fundamentally different – in a good way.
