Eastleigh College offers a wide range of higher level professional qualifications, which have been designed to offer you a way of studying which best suits your work-life requirements.

If you would like to study a traditional HE degree, we offer a number of courses which are taught on-site in Eastleigh, but are accredited by the University of Portsmouth. As an alternative, we also offer a number of qualifications at the same level which offer differing modes of study. This is broken down in the following list:

Higher Apprenticeships

  • Work-based: No formal ‘lessons’, you put together a portfolio of evidence whilst at work, alongside receiving guidance and support from your assigned assessor
  • Day/block release (ECTA): You will attend lessons either one day a week (‘day’ release) or a number of whole weeks within a set period (‘block’ release)

Level 4, 5, 6 and 7 Part-Time Courses

  • Faculty: a variety of long or short courses studied at set times through classroom based learning at the College
  • Work-based: a qualification gained through a completed portfolio of works, whilst your current, related job role is undertaken
  • Higher Education: studied part-time at Eastleigh College, with access to the facilities at the University of Portsmouth, who accredit the qualifications
