Further Education

FUNDING SUPPORT

Further Education in the United Kingdom is education in addition to that received at secondary school, that is distinct from the higher education (HE) offered in universities and other academic institutions. It may be at any level in compulsory secondary education, from entry to higher level qualifications such as awards, certificates, diplomas and other vocational, competency-based qualifications (such as NVQ).
Further Education in the United Kingdom is usually a means to attain an intermediate, advanced or follow-up qualification necessary to progress into HE, or to begin a specific career path.

The first studies undertaken at university are generally referred to as undergraduate studies, designed to introduce students to the knowledge base within a specific discipline. An undergraduate is a candidate enrolled in higher education who has not yet received their first degree. A Bachelor’s degree is the name of an award given to students upon completion of their undergraduate studies.

A postgraduate student is any student engaged in higher education beyond their first degree. Postgraduate study refers to the range of courses available to students who have completed undergraduate studies. It requires a higher level of understanding, greater independence and more specialised knowledge than undergraduate study. Postgraduate programs includes Master and Doctorate (PhD) courses.
