Higher Education

Higher education (HE) is the next step in education after school or college, where you may have had the opportunity to achieve GCSEs and A-levels (or equivalent). The most common type of higher education in the UK is university, but there are also colleges which offer higher education qualifications, such as foundation degrees. Higher education is the path to obtaining a degree level qualification, and is the most popular option for school leavers – over 40% of students who leave school or Sixth Form College will go to university!
