New course at Northern Regional College means business


Northern Regional College continually reviews its curriculum to ensure it meets the changing business environment. From September 2019, an HNC in Business will be offered on a part time basis at its Magherafelt campus. The course aims to give students the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for a career in middle to senior management. Mandatory units include Business Environment Managing, Financial Resources and Decisions and Organisations and Behaviour Marketing Principles.

It is closely mapped to the BSc (Hons) Degree in Business offered at the Northern Regional College (validated by Ulster University). Students who successfully complete the HNC can progress to the degree programme.

Northern Regional College’s Magherafelt campus will hold an Open Day on Tuesday 5 February from 4pm to 8pm, and on Saturday 9 February from 10am to 1pm. Open Days are a great opportunity to visit the College and find out more about the courses and facilities on offer. Information will be available on Training/Apprenticeships, GCSE equivalent courses (Level 2 BTEC Diploma) and A Level equivalent courses (Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma), as well as higher education courses including Foundation Degrees and Higher Level Apprenticeships. Staff are available to provide advice and guidance on student finance, education support, careers and the online application process.
