Awarding Bodies

We work with National Awarding Bodies to provide high quality teaching and learning

The University Centre Stockport College works with Sheffield Hallam University as an awarding body and Pearson as an awarding organisation. The majority of our degree courses are validated by Sheffield Hallam University.

Sheffield Hallam University (SHU)

Sheffield Hallam works in partnership with a number of Further Education Colleges such as Stockport College who provide University validated Foundation degree courses. You may, upon successful completion of the course, be then able to top up your foundation degree to a full honours degree at Sheffield Hallam.

SHU validated foundation degrees are available in a range of course areas including Art and Design, Media, Public Services, Education, Sport, Business, Events & Tourism, Fashion, Health and Social Care, Bioscience and Biochemistry, Games Design, Computing, Photography and Engineering.


Person's are in the business of building sustainable, lasting partnerships with some of the nation’s top academic institutions. In doing so, the needs of academic partners, their students, and faculty become a priority in all facets of their business.

Whether it's at home, in the classroom, or in the workplace, learning is a never-ending road of discovery, challenge, inspiration, and wonder. At Pearson, they create tools that provide opportunities for learners at every stage of their journey. Because wherever learning flourishes, so do people.
