HND courses at college

Former MemberFormer Member The Mix Honorary GuruPosts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
Ok.. I'm rather conffused and i've sent an email of to the college asking to shed some light, im currently studying a Btec national diploma in moving images and im moving to aberdeen to do a HND in Creative Industries -
Television, the only thing is one tutor has said i need to join UCAS for it another said I didn't, i emailed Aberdeen college and asked them but it will take time for them to reply so does anyone here know, thanks.

    Well to apply for a HND course or a course at university, you have to go through UCAS. It's all done through them nowadays.
  • Former MemberFormer Member The Mix Honorary Guru Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    See now i was unsure as two tutors said differently and its not a university course, it's taught at a college.

    it wouldnt hurt to go through ucas, doesnt it stand for university and college admissions service? :confused:

    maybe search for the course/place on the UCAS site and if it's on there i guess you would have to use it to apply.

    Go on the college website and find out.

    Most HND courses aren't through UCAS, in my experience anyway.

    In Scotland they never used to be through UCAS ...

    Dunno if rules have changed in the last couple of years though.

    My friend is doing the HND Music Production course at the college we go to now, and he has to go through UCAS. So I'd think so.

    And you have to pay.
  • Former MemberFormer Member The Mix Honorary Guru Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yes i know i have to pay at aberdeen college.
  • Former MemberFormer Member The Mix Honorary Guru Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Well I was talking about paying to apply, if that's what you were then, slap me.

    Moving to Aberdeen? Don't go, it's a shithole. My dad works out there sometimes.
    It has lots of Pubs, and not much else.

    aberdeen is lovely.. i like it there..

    and yes its £15 to join ucas but it also costs to go to college in scotland apparently so i have to pay but not as much as uni thank fuck

    Looks like a big dock, and a couple of Pubs on Google Earth.

    How on earth does it take 12 hours to get there? Are you walking it?
  • Former MemberFormer Member The Mix Honorary Guru Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I leave mine at 21.00 get a 21.30 train from essex to london.. get to london for 22.30 and across for 23 five min walk to victroia greenline get on megabus at 11.30 leave at 23.55, 8hours to glasgow get in at 08.30 11-12 hours although they now changed the time table so it gets in an hour earlier as we use to get a 1hour break to change drivers at keale service station.. i believe that adds upto almost 12 hours?
