Modular Acceleration Programme (MAP) Skills for Life

Regent College London is delighted to offer the Modular Acceleration Programme (MAP) from September 2024.

This fully funded opportunity will enable participants to build credits towards a Higher Technical Qualification (HTQ) free of charge. HTQs are practical and skills-based courses developed in collaboration with employers, they include level 4 Higher National Certificates (HNC) and level 5 Higher National Diplomas (HND).

You can choose from eight 30-credit HTQ modules spanning Engineering and Digital Technologies and develop practical skills which directly enhance employability.

This programme is open to anyone:

    • aged between 19 and 60.
    • Residents of England (further Conditions may apply – please check eligibility when registering your interest).

Why should I apply?

Free Tuition

That’s right – successful applicants will undertake exciting, career-focused HTQ modules completely free of charge.


The great thing about this opportunity is the flexible, bite-sized learning it offers. Tailor your education to fit your life, with blended or face-to-face study options and classes taking place in the evenings and weekends.

In-demand Skills

Our modules are designed with the job market in mind, focusing on practical, in-demand skills and qualifications. They are ideal for students who wish to improve their employability by upskilling, as well as those who wish to enter a new industry by reskilling.


The MAP programme allows you to gain credits at your own pace and gives you the option of transferring into and completing a full HTQ, should you choose to do so.

Student support

All participants will receive access to RCL’s robust student support ecosystem. Our dedicated team are on hand to provide impartial advice and improve your educational experience – from study skills to mental health and wellbeing.

What modules are available?

There are eight modules to choose from – spanning Engineering and Digital Technologies subjects from our HND programmes. Each module is made up of two units and you must take both units to qualify for free-of-charge tuition.
