Designed with involvement from universities, employers, students and professional bodies, BTEC Higher Nationals provide real world experience, as well as academic knowledge. This ensures students leave with expertise recognised by business and industry, and the flexibility to go straight into employment, or progress to a degree. BTEC Higher Nationals are delivered at both universities and colleges in 58 countries around the world, and are an ideal choice for learners seeking an affordable and relevant route to a degree or employment.

MIUC is an affiliate center of Pearson. We at Metropolitan international university College put the learners at focus of everything we do. The HND programmes at MIUC provide greater breadth and specialization. BTEC HNDs are followed predominately by full-time learners.
