What is Higher Education?
Higher Education (HE) means university level courses, generally at Level 4 and above and can give you the chance to study a subject you are interested in and boost your career prospects and earning potential.
You may just want to study a subject which really interests you or to broaden your knowledge in a certain area. However, studying a higher education qualification can also help you develop skills and qualities valued by employers such as problem-solving and communication skills.
Your choice of career may be a key reason in deciding to go into higher education as some careers such as dentistry, chartered engineering, medicine and architecture require you to have a degree. Other professions, like law or speech therapy, require you to have an additional postgraduate qualification on top of your degree before you can practice.
