Cert HE Update - COVID-19

Important Cert HE COVID-19 updates.

There are important changes to how Cert HE registration and applications for SAAS funding will be handled in 2020/21 due to Covid-19.

  • All Term 1 courses will be delivered online. Details about Term 2 and 3 offerings will be made available later in 2020.
  • Whilst Cert HE students are usually required to choose all their courses for the year in advance, there will be the opportunity to choose Term 2 and 3 courses later in the year. Students will be contacted abour this once our Term 2 and 3 courses are available.
  • The COL reception desk is not currently open. For queries about Cert HE, please contact our admissions team via email:  
  • SAAS are not currently accepting direct applications for the Part-Time Fee Grant (PTFG). However, COL can help Cert HE students to apply for SAAS funding. Please contact us if you intend to apply to SAAS in your Cert HE application form or in your Continuing Student Course Choice Form. We will be in touch about what happens next once Term 2 and 3 courses are available, so we can capture your full course enrolments for the SAAS application.
