Higher National Diplomas (HNDs)
HNDs are work-related, or vocational, higher education qualifications to give you the skills you need to work in a particular job.
As Level 5 qualifications (equivalent to a foundation degree) with the focus on ‘learning by doing, these practical diplomas are highly valued by employers.
Your internationally recognised qualification can also count towards membership of professional bodies and other employer organisations.
