THE HUDDERSFIELD NEW COLLEGE HONOURS AND FUTURES PROGRAMMES
These unique programmes have been designed in response to the findings of some of the UK’s leading universities and businesses. A need has been identified for students to be equipped with both the academic knowledge and practical skills required to succeed during their time at college.
Students on the programme will study three subjects consisting of either two traditional A Level subjects plus one vocational A Level, or three traditional A Level subjects. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to study professional qualifications relevant to your chosen career pathway and you will be provided with the opportunity to undertake valuable, relevant work experience and internships.
As well as other professional qualifications, you will also be given the opportunity to complete the AQA Extended Project Qualification in your second year which (for universities using the UCAS Tariff in their offers) can give you more points than an AS level and in some instances is used during university interviews to explore a student’s passion for a particular subject.
THE HONOURS PROGRAMME
Today’s students will compete with talented individuals with similar aspirations, grades and personal achievements, making the entry process to prestigious universities both challenging and competitive. Universities are now expecting their prospective students to possess a range of core skills in addition to their academic achievements; skills that are vital not only to succeed at undergraduate level, but are essential for creating rounded, adaptable graduates heading into the workplace.
If you are interested in applying to Oxbridge, not only will you enjoy specialist one-to-one advice on the application process you may also have the opportunity to visit one, or possibly both universities.
THE FUTURES PROGRAMME
This programme is open to students aged 16-19 who achieve 8 Grade 6 grades or equivalent at GCSE and demonstrate passion and enthusiasm for a specific subject area. It aims to prepare students for a university course or career in their chosen area, providing access to additional qualifications, relevant opportunities, advice and guidance.
