What's it all about?

The purpose of the Engineering Bridging Unit (Further Education to Higher Education) is to fill the academic gap in maths and science and to provide study skills (independent study) along with an understanding of organising and managing engineering operations.

It is aimed at those who wish to enter higher education courses in engineering (Higher National Certificate or Foundation Degree) and are either undertaking the ‘craft’ Apprenticeship route or who are mature employees that have been out of education for some time.
