HE Studies

SERC offers a wide range of Higher Education courses including Degrees, Foundation Degrees, Higher National Diplomas and Certificates and Higher-Level Apprenticeships in more than twenty curriculum areas.

However, we understand that you want much more than a qualification to help you “stand out from the crowd”, so we have created a unique industry-led initiative. ““Get The Edge” gives our students a range of opportunities to enhance their employability skills and gain real-life experiences, through initiatives such as local and international work placements, industry projects, volunteering and SERC student companies.

All students within the EU can study at SERC without incurring any fees and students outside the EU will only pay £6,500 per year making Northern Ireland a very attractive option for your studies.

Summer School Programme

A summer spent at SERC will be an experience you will never forget. With a focus on rich culture, quality teaching and your safety and wellbeing in mind we can offer you a unique experience “in the most welcoming city in the UK for foreigners”, (EU survey 2016).

Our dedicated international team has developed a unique programme of activities, study options and cultural experiences specially designed for you to make the most out of your experience with us. We will arrange a full programme, staying at modern centrally located accommodation on a full-board basis or in self-catering accommodation, tuition in a curriculum area of your choice, English Language lessons, airport transfers, daily transport to and from the campus, cultural activities and we’ll also through in some free time as well.

And, what’s even better, because we can keep our tuition fees affordable, the total cost will be lower than you think!
