Courses for International Students

Courses for International Students

We have a wide range of programmes on offer which lead to the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Higher National Certificate (HNC) or Higher National Diploma (HND) awards. The HND is the equivalent to the first two years at university and many learners who complete the HND transfer directly in to the third year of a relevant university Degree programme. Our fees are considerably lower than university fees so SLC is a very attractive option for international learners.

On successful completion of a course at South Lanarkshire College we’ll help with your next step. If you choose to progress on to university we have articulation agreements in place with several well known universities and can help you to make an informed choice about the future.

In addition to the courses mentioned in our course finder we also offer Pre-Masters programmes for students who already have a degree or diploma from their home country, who need an additional qualification in order to go on to a Masters degree at university. If you’re interested in a Pre-Masters course at SLC please email: international@slc.ac.uk

Our reputation for quality is outstanding. Scottish qualifications are recognised and respected worldwide.
In 2007 SLC was the first college in Scotland to have learning and teaching graded Very Good (the maximum grade) in every subject area reviewed by Education Scotland (formerly Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education).
This achievement was repeated in 2011 in our last full inspection, when the inspector’s review, based on the new review criteria, again resulted in the College having the best review report in the sector. Education Scotland found many examples of excellence and sector-leading practice at SLC. Have a look at the findings here.
