The principal entry requirement for a Teesside University open learning in engineering HNC course is that our tutors are satisfied you can be expected to benefit from the course and have a realistic expectation of successfully completing it.

The basic entry requirement for the HNC courses is a level 3 qualification in mathematics. If you do not hold a qualification at this level then we have a bridging module available - Foundation Mathematics for Engineers.

For entry onto either HNC Chemical Engineering or HNC Processing Engineering you may be required to complete a bridging module in Process Chemistry.

In addition, we will make every effort to take relevant previous experience and appropriate alternative qualifications into account.
