BA HONS BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

“What appealed to me the most about Farnborough is that it’s such a friendly and welcoming environment.

The course is fantastic – it’s very fun and challenges you in a lot of ways. It covers a much broader range of subjects rather than limiting yourself to just one. I really enjoyed the Marketing modules.

Since finishing my degree I have gone on to progress in my career. I work at Enterprise Rent-a-Car and I am now a Legacy Debt Claim Specialist.”

GEMMA

BA (HONS) GRAPHIC DESIGN

“I studied a foundation degree at another university before I came here, as I found there wasn’t enough support. Farnborough had a more personal touch – my tutors were brilliant and I had lots of one-to-one support thanks to the smaller class sizes.”

SOPHIE

BSC HONS COMPUTING

“The course was very insightful. I was a late starter and didn’t have much experience. I was a bit scared not knowing anything but I got a lot of support and help which I’m really grateful for.

Being in a small group and having the communication and relationship with the lecturers is great. You can ask them any question and they will point you in the right direction.”

LEILA

BA HONS EDUCATION (LEARNING SUPPORT)

“The modules enabled me to understand what I was doing in my day to day practice as a teaching assistant, as I had to apply some of the theory to my practice.

I did not feel as though I was just another student, I felt valued and included whenever I was in a lecture. I also felt that the lecturers wanted to help beyond lesson times and were so willing to go the extra mile for the students who needed that extra bit of support.

This has helped me to achieve my dream of completing a degree, something I did not think was achievable for me.”

CYDNEY

BA HONS PSYCHOLOGY WITH CRIMINOLOGY

“My university experience has been really good so far, I was nervous to start but it’s a really friendly environment and everyone is approachable. I feel supported by the lecturers and it’s easy to reach out if you need any extra help.

I’ve most enjoyed learning about the theories in Criminology, which have been really interesting. We look at the media and how crimes are portrayed and it’s really eye opening to see how different they are in real life.

As I’m doing the fast track degree, which is only two years of study I have already started planning what I want to do in the future.”

What’s an HNC/HND?

> Unlike many degrees, Higher National Certificates and Higher National Diplomas are vocationally focused and can lead directly into a career.

> They’re also a route into a higher qualification, as you can choose to ‘top up’ an HND to a full bachelor’s degree.

> Our courses are a great option for students who want to continue their education through applied learning and/or who want to study locally.

Sport

Meet the students

Our sport degrees are for students who like to think about sports in-depth, with career aspirations to work in strength and conditioning, human performance, personal training, physical education or health-based careers.
