A new report sets a series of recommendations for colleges and universities to create more opportunities for students to progress seamlessly between a Higher National (HN) qualification into a university degree.

Produced by the National Articulation Forum, a joint initiative by Colleges Scotland and Universities Scotland, the report calls for an acceleration of action to develop pathways from college into university, to help more students avoid repeating levels of study across different qualifications by recognising their credit for previous learning. Further details can be found in the press release.
