Why study a Level 4 or 5 qualification?

Level 4 and 5 qualifications are designed for specialist learning and are suitable for people currently working in, or wishing to enter into, technical and professional jobs, and/or managing and developing others.

A Level 4 and 5 qualification represents a greater understanding and a higher level of learning than that gained from secondary education level. It also acts as the bridge between Level 3 and 6 - helping those to progress to the next stage of education where they may not have had the qualifications previously to do so.

There is an increasing demand from employers for qualifications at this level in key sectors like automotive, engineering, digital, management, business and more - helping to plug the current skills gap in these areas.

Students studying at this level can often study part-time and continue with their current employment.

Enrolling employees on Level 4 and 5 course can also be a great way for employers to upskill their workforce benefiting both the company and their staff.

Companies that train staff at these levels may receive improved productivity, better adherence to quality standards, a workforce that can do a greater variety of work and an ability to respond effectively to change.

What Our IoT Students Say

Don't just take our word for it! Hear what our current and past students say about their experience studying at Lincoln College.

Why did you choose this degree course and why Lincoln College University Centre?

I chose this degree course mainly because I want to pursue a career in cybersecurity. I had offers from a few other universities but the staff and the quality of learning I would get by having the smaller group sizes at Lincoln College appealed more to me. Since I knew all the tutors beforehand it made the transition from Level 3 to BSc a lot easier to overcome.

What did you enjoy most about your course?

I think the small class sizes alongside the friendly tutors enable for a very enjoyable learning environment which I believe is the most enjoyable aspect of the course.

What advice would you give to someone else looking at studying the same course?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions as they will become your best friend and time management will become crucial so keep a journal or something to plan your time.
