The CertHE is a recognised qualification in its own right and provides an entry route to degree-level study. This is a great option if you feel ready to study a degree course but don’t have the necessary qualifications usually required, such as GCSEs or A levels.
Our CertHE Computing course lays a solid foundation in areas such as Databases, Programming, Web Authoring and Computer Systems, giving you the skills you need to start your career in Computing, or continue studying and become an expert in your chosen field.
Our CertHE in computing has been designed to give you the expertise you need to start your career on the right footing. Your course modules are regularly updated by our computing faculty members, ensuring you gain the skills to meet the current and emerging needs of the sector.
The course gave me the confidence and skills to go for senior jobs that I wouldn’t have previously. I have been promoted several times since.
This is a 1-year course available through full-time blended learning, which gives you additional study support and is ideal if you’re still unsure about committing to a full 3-year degree course.

At Arden University we consider applications on a case by case basis. If you have significant work experience, have qualifications you have gained elsewhere, or a degree or qualification that isn't a clear pathway to this degree - we are more than happy to discuss your application.
We welcome anyone onto our CertHE course who can show us their determination to complete the qualification. You’ll just need to complete our one-week Introduction to Higher Education, which mirrors the timetabled hours of your programme. Once you’ve passed this, you’ll be able to start on your CertHE.
We’ll give you all the support you need to succeed. Then, when you graduate from your CertHE course, you'll be able to progress on to the rest of the degree course if you decide it’s right for you.
