Discover HE

Welcome to Discover HE

The Discover HE database has been developed to demonstrate a wide range of sector-specific information on higher level courses offered in the North West by Higher Education Institutions, Further Education Colleges and Work-Based Learning Providers. It offers a starting point to explore provision for industry sectors from various providers in one single place and directs users to individual institutional websites to find out more details.

Although available for anyone to use, this database is primarily aimed at skills brokers and other intermediaries to assist with:

  • Finding initial information on sector-specific courses
  • Browsing courses from a range of level 4+ providers in the North West
  • Looking for courses in your geographical area
  • Getting in touch with our Specialist Advisers to ask any questions

Discover HE aims to allow more effective cross working with employers by creating a single source of provision information for skills brokers and other intermediaries.

It currently includes 5837 courses from 16 Higher Education Institutions , 683 courses from 31 Further Education Colleges and 2 courses from 1 Work-Based Learning providers in the North West. We expect the database to be updated as new institutional data becomes available to include HE provision at all levels (HNC/HND, Foundation Degree, Honours Degree, Postgraduate Degree, CPD and short courses) currently offered in HEIs, FECs and WBL providers across the region.
