Herefordshire and Ludlow College has a range of Higher Education courses. These are particularly suited to working people who wish to study on a part-time basis in order to enhance their career prospects. We believe that it is important that people are able to access good quality higher education programmes of study locally, without having to lose time and money travelling to out of county institutions.
Our higher education students really appreciate the high level of expertise of our tutors, the excellent support they receive from working in relatively small groups, and the friendly college environment.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL)
If you have previously studied at higher level, or you have equivalent experience, you may be able to get credit for this on your course at HLC.
In applying for APL this 'prior learning' could be translated into a number of credits to contribute directly to your higher level qualification. These credits would be mapped directly to specific modules, removing the need for you to study them. If you would like to discuss APL please contact the College and ask to speak with the course tutor. They will happily go through this with you in more detail.
