We work with a range of partners and organisations including HEPP and HeppSY

Higher Education at our Partner Colleges

Sheffield Hallam works in partnership with a number of Further Education Colleges who provide University validated courses such as Foundation Degrees, Certificates of Higher Education (Cert HE), as well as full degrees. Upon successful completion of either a Foundation Degree or a Cert HE, you may then be able to ‘top up’ to a full honours degree at Sheffield Hallam.


Our validated courses are available in a range of subject areas including Art and Design, Media, Performing Arts, Public Services, Education, Sport, Business, Events & Tourism, Fashion, Health and Social Care, Bioscience and Biochemistry, Games Design, Computing, Photography and Engineering.


What is a Foundation Degree and a Certificate in Higher Education?


Foundation Degree is typically a level 4/5 vocational qualification equivalent to the first and second year of an honours degree.  A Foundation Degree typically takes two years to complete with a further year ‘top up’ to make it a full honours degree.


Certificate in Higher Education is typically a level 4 qualification and is equivalent to the first full year of a full-time degree programme.  Upon successful completion, you can typically progress on to a relevant full Batchelors Degree.
