HND and Foundation programmes

Jessica
I can’t believe Clearing is almost over! It has gone by very quickly.  Even though the main busy period in Clearing has past when A-level results came out, our phones are still quite busy.  We are still taking Clearing applications so  don’t hesitate to give us a ring on 020 8331 9000 if you have any queries, even if it’s to double check something you already know.   We are here to help no matter what the query is.  Also if you prefer to email for general enquiries you can email us at courseinfo@gre.ac.uk.

It’s important to know that when applying for a full-time undergraduate programme with us you must do it via UCAS and your status has to be in clearing, so you shouldn’t be holding an offer from other institutes.  For part-time undergraduate programmes and all postgraduate programmes you would have to apply directly to us by completing the online application form at www.gre.ac.uk/apply.  

Another thing, if you don’t have the required points to get onto an undergraduate programme there are other options, you could either apply for an HND or a foundation degree. Once you have completed the 2 years of a HND programme, you are eligible to apply for a transfer into the third year of the honours degree programme.  Many applicants prefer to do an HND or foundation degree as they end up with the same qualifications as those that started from the first year of the Honours degree; it’s just another route to take.  For our foundation degrees the outcome is to progress to a full honours degree or to enhance your employability skills.  There is much more information on our website if you visit www.gre.ac.uk you can browse through our programmes and check to see if they are still in clearing.  Don’t wait, please get in contact as soon as possible!  You may still have a chance to get onto your desired programme.  We look forward to hearing from you!
