Course Start Dates and Fees

DGHE offers a range of level 4 & 5 BTEC HNC/HND courses and University Top-up Degrees. Students can choose from either daytime or our new flexible programme options. The College has new intakes in September, January and April each year. Course fees vary according to duration and study mode but are the same for both UK/EU and International students.

Note: UK/EU students may be eligible for study loans/grants from the Student Loans Company. This support can help finance both your studies and day to day living expenses (depending on the course level). Please telephone one of our Advisors to discuss the options that may be available to you.
