Bridging Units –

Initially creating real interest (in industry) but for required more in-depth detail.

Intelligence gathering took place

The idea of “bridging units”. Continued to expand and was taken to the market. … but 4 key issues raised…..

what are bridging units
What are bridging units?

  • This provides access to a 24/7 learning environment.
  • You are supported throughout the process from registration through to completion.
  • Provides engagement to fellow learners through Group blog, individual blog, all supported by your dedicated and specialist on-line tutor.
  • You study at times and places to suit the organisation but progress as a cohort via interactive media
  • Typically in 10 weeks you will cover 50 hours of learning, but this can be varied to suit the organisation and individual learner availability but equates to the equivalent of 5 higher educational credits.

  • All Units fit within the modular degree structure and can be accumulated to attain awards
  • Because the Units are within the modularised degree structure students can transfer between modes of study
  • In time they can diversify into a mix of study for work and study for leisure
  • They are run throughout the year so the learner can have a step-on step-off experience
  • They can and will be constantly adapted and modified for new market sectors or differing organisations, reflecting both educational requirements and organisational culture / values.

Mr Robert Francis



The cost of each 5 credit unit is currently under review with a decision to be announced shortly.

On completion of each unit (pass/fail) based on activities set throughout the week’s , you will receive a certificate.

On completion of the 4th unit in the suite, you will be required to undertake a written assignment, but will be issued with a certificate from the University and be awarded a grade, and 20 credits of HE.
