We work with selected top universities to provide a number of routes to gaining a degree, including…


The BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) and the Higher National Diploma (HND) are widely recognised and highly regarded qualifications. We offer these in variety of subjects and flexible modes of study including part-time, block release, or evening options

Top-Up Degree

Successful Foundation Degree and HND students are eligible to progress on to a final year BA or BSc (Hons) degree programme at Loughborough College. This will lead to a degree with honours.

Foundation Degree

These qualifications have been designed together with employers to meet the growing demand for highly-skilled people who have an enhanced understanding of their subject and can apply it in the workplace. You can either enter employment after completing the course or choose to ‘top-up’ to a full honours degree.

Part-Time Courses

Many of our degree courses can be studied on a part-time basis, allowing you to fit studying for a degree around work and family commitments.

Honours Degree

We also offer full three-year honours degree courses, delivered with our partner universities. Although you will study at Loughborough College, your final qualification will be awarded by the validating university itself and will be equivalent to receiving a degree directly from them.

What is Clearing?

Clearing is a UCAS service that aims to help applicants find a vacancy on a higher education course if they haven't secured one yet. The service is available between July and September.

You can take part in UCAS Clearing 2023 if you fall into one of the following categories:

  • You haven't applied to university yet
  • You've changed your mind about the courses you have applied for
  • You've not received any offers

You don't have to wait until A Level results day to apply through Clearing. If you apply after 5th July 2023 you will be eligible for clearing and we will be accepting applications. Get in touch now to find out about the places we have available.

Clearing Vacancies

We have limited places available on a number of our Higher Education courses. Our courses cover a wide range of sectors but are all designed to prepare you for employment. At Loughborough College, you can expect the same quality as a university but with more one-on-one time with tutors.

Whether you want to study full-time or part-time, you’ll get the same, valuable qualification and still be eligible for a student loan. We have Clearing vacancies available in these subject areas:
