Computing HND

Course overview

This course is based at our Stamford Campus, but accredited by University Centre Peterborough.

The Higher National Diploma in Computing is a nationally recognised university-level programme which places emphasis on employer engagement and work readiness. The programme is designed to help computing students secure the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to succeed in the workplace. Students will study a range of modules which include elements of theory and practical.

At our Stamford campus, this programme is offered as a general pathway in the field of computing, keeping doors open for a wide range of career paths and future study options. The programme aligns with level 4 and 5 of the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ), meaning those students wishing to progress to level 6 study can do so whilst feeling better prepared. Students have the option to study level 6 of the BSc (Hons) Computing and Information System at UCP subject to successful interview.

Graduates from the Higher National Diploma in Computing will have developed a sound understanding of the principles in their field of study and will have learned to apply those principles more widely. Graduates will have learned to evaluate the appropriateness of different approaches to solving problems.

Students will be able to perform effectively in their chosen field and will have the qualities necessary for employment in situations requiring the exercise of personal responsibility and decision-making. Furthermore, graduates will have developed a range of transferable skills to ensure effective team working, independent initiatives, organisational competence and problem-solving strategies. They will be adaptable and flexible in their approach to computing, show resilience under pressure, and meet challenging targets within a given resource.

The courses at University Centre Peterborough are studied in smaller class sizes compared with other universities, a typical class size is under 30 students.
