Here at HNC we educate, enrich and enlighten students. As a student you will be strongly encouraged to take part in enrichment. Not only does it give you the competitive edge when applying for world-leading universities, apprenticeships and jobs through developing new skills, it also opens up a huge range of opportunities, builds your confidence and enables you to try something new. The benefits from taking part in an enrichment activity can be life-long, and here at HNC we have something for everyone. You can gain a flavour of the different types of enrichments available via the information below. Our information booklet below reveals more about our current offer for students - please note that this is continuously reviewed in response to student feedback and therefore our offer remains subject to change.
Students are encouraged to stay happy and healthy with a range of sports based opportunities which are available to all - regardless of study programme or sporting ability. Staying physically active helps build resilience and good mental health and wellbeing. You can use our onsite Fitness Suite, trial for a Sports Academy, train in our weekly boxing sessions and even take part in dance or acro workshops.
Our leadership opportunities ensure you shine at interviews with universities and employers. You could join our Oxbridge Programme, be a dragon in the Young Enterprise challenge or become a Student Diversity Champion, Head Student, Student Governor or IT Representative.
Express yourself via a wide range of clubs and activities which give you a chance to get creative. You might join our popular knitting club, make jewellery or ceramics, join the Book Club, try your hand at fashion design or even perform in the College musical!
Gain a qualification
Achieving an additional qualification enhances your skills and knowledge and helps you to stand out from the crowd. You can undertake your Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE), become a Microsoft Office Specialist, learn British Sign Language, undertake the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) or even gain industry based qualifications such as the Level 3 Coaching award and NCFE Air Cabin Crew.
