Study to degree level at an LMC partnered university
Studying at College doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the university experience. On completion of your HND, you may choose to start work, or you could take a one year top up course at university to complete your studies to honours degree level. Top up courses are available at UCLan, Blackburn College and University of Cumbria, with many LMC students completing their degrees via this route. Some also choose to travel further afield to complete their degrees – the choice is yours! The top up option provides a much more cost effective way to obtain an honours degree as you only pay full university fees for the final top up year. Fees for the HND part of your course are only £5,000 per year, so represent a significant saving.
For those wishing to progress to university after completion of an Access Diploma, we have a partnership with the University of Cumbria. Through the “Gold Guaranteed Offer” scheme, LMC students who apply before the UCAS deadline and have predicted grades within 40 UCAS points of the University’s standard offer for their chosen course will receive a guaranteed conditional offer on selected undergraduate degree programmes.
