Save up to £8K on the cost of a UK degree - study for an HND!

A strong and cost-effective route for studying a HNC or HND at D&A College can get you into year 2 or 3 of an under-graduate degree programme at our nearby partner universities.

Students enjoy 3 great campuses in enviable locations, where one of the fastest-growing digital and biotechnology clusters in the world has developed. We’re well-connected by trains and buses to all major cities and airports. One of the key features of our college, which is very popular with our international students, is the fact that we are a truly international college. Students come to us from all over the world, from Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Far East and from many countries in Europe. They appreciate the fact that they can feel “at home” straight away and can see other students from their parts of the world on the college campus. Making friends becomes easier and settling into life in the UK less daunting. Even our dining areas boast an international menu and cater for cuisine from all over the world.
