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. If you wish to start with the Foundation Mathematics for Engineers module, please state this on your application form.

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.
