A Higher National Diploma is a two years undergraduate programme leading to an international graduate degree. It is a skill based qualification designed to help the candidates with employment by giving them hands-on skills, focusing on varnishing skills and teaching them practical application of concepts. This programme is a coursework based qualification and is spread over two years (4 semesters), with different specialization pathways. The aim of this qualification is to equip the learner with up-to-date sector-related skills so as to make the employment path easier for them by focusing on the skill sets in addition to understanding and knowledge of the content and the subjects. It is a flexible programme that meets the requirements of working individuals as well.
