Sheffield Hallam University logoFor many, a City & Guilds qualification is a stepping stone towards a new job. For many others, it can also open the door to higher education.

The new City & Guilds level 4 and level 5 engineering qualifications enable learners to study for a UK university degree with advanced entry. This normally means that a candidate can progress into the second year of a three-year UK degree if they hold a level 4 engineering qualification or join the course in the final year with a level 5 qualification.

This week, we are featuring progression routes with the Sheffield Hallam University. Further details are available in the recognition list (PDF, 9MB).
