What is KIS?
What you study
You study 16 units chosen to cover the range of needs of local and national industries and business. The HND provides a sound understanding of all key principles.
How you learn
You are provided with a self-contained comprehensive study pack for each of the modules. Each module consists of a folder or folders containing a series of lessons grouped into topics. Each lesson has an introduction, your aims, study advice, self-assessment questions and a summary.
It is important that you realise that open learning study requires a considerable degree of self-discipline. You must be prepared to devote both time and effort to studying notwithstanding other distractions which may be present.
Each module is supported via firstname.lastname@example.org.
How you are assessed
Assessment is by a range of integrated assignments, case studies and projects. Completion of these assessments is negotiated with your module tutor.
The HND programme is a nationally recognised qualification awarded under licence from Edexcel.
Students who complete this course can progress directly to an appropriate degree at the University.
This course has been designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge which will enable you to gain employment within the process and related industries in the area of management.
The qualification provides you with the opportunity to seek career development into a senior position in national and international companies.
Applicants should normally have a BTEC National Certificate in a similar or related discipline or GCSE A level qualifications in mathematics or science. Relevant engineering experience will also be considered.
For mature students with appropriate work experience a 'bridging' programme in mathematics may be required.
