University of Worcester
The University of Worcester works in close partnership with Herefordshire College of Technology to offer a variety of opportunities to progress to higher education, both locally in Hereford itself and in nearby Worcester.
Through our partnership you can experience a great lifestyle, have the chance to make lots of new friends and look forward to increased earning potential with a qualification tailored to your needs and ambitions. Between us, we have created a learning environment of which we are extremely proud. Whether you require laboratories or study support, sports facilities or computing assistance we have an excellent infrastructure that is here when you need it.
Our employer links ensure our courses are up-to-date and our Student Services team work hard to ensure that you get the right information, at the right time. The friendly atmosphere, both at HCT and UW, means you’ll enjoy all of your time with us, whether you’re studying or socialising with new friends.
Whatever your reason for study, the partnership we have developed provides you with all the benefits of high quality learning provision and enables you to make a choice that you can look back on with confidence and pride.
University of Warwick
The provision of courses from University of Warwick occupies a key role in the continued professional development of staff within the College and the community it serves. Through its sequential series of awards and module opportunities it responds to individual and institutional aspirations, providing professional excellence and a quality provision for its students.
The successful partnership brings benefits in terms of quality and offers opportunities to students who might not otherwise be able to attend University. Students of Herefordshire College of Technology can claim to be part of a national cohort of students on courses that meet the expectations of employers, as well as statutory requirements for teaching in the post shcool sector.
"Working with HCT has always been positive, rewarding and of considerable value to students, the College and the University".
University of Gloucestershire
We are constantly looking to create partnerships with other Colleges and Universities in order to offer students more scope and a wider course choice within the HE sector. This year we are introducing a new Foundation Degree in Information Communication Technology to meet the needs of local employers. We look forward to a long and happy association with the University of Gloucestershire.
Hereford College of Arts
Herefordshire College of Technology and Hereford College of Arts are working together to offer specialist courses with a high quality learning provision.
Hereford College of Arts is a small, specialist arts college offering a range of courses in art, design and the performing arts – from entry level through to Foundation and Honours Degrees, or part time courses for those returning as mature students.
The pioneering HE courses featured within this prospectus (a collaborative delivery between Hereford College of Arts and The National School of Blacksmithing at Herefordshire College of Technology) offers the opportunity to study Artist Blacksmithing, a unique course for students wishing to pursue a creative practice in architectural and sculptural forged metalwork, centred in the unparalleled workshop facilities, HCT’s Centre for Rural Crafts at Holme Lacy, which rival anything in Europe.
“Working with HCT provides learners with the advantages of studying within a unique and specialised environment, with high quality teaching and facilities.”
