Advanced Higher, Higher and National 5 Enrolment Information

Two school aged pupils working at a desk.

At Edinburgh College, we offer a range of subjects at Advanced Higher, Higher and National 5 level that you can study part-time. You can choose to study up to two subjects during one academic year.  

These qualifications are accredited by the SQA and act as a pathway to further study including university entry.

Applying for an Advanced Higher, Higher or National 5 is slightly different to applying for our other courses. Depending on your situation and what you want to study, you can apply for a course now, at one of our Enrolment Events or from when you get your exam results on Tuesday 10 August 2021.  

If you are interested in applying for one of these courses, the statements below will help you decide the best way to apply for your course and provide information about how you can apply at one of our Enrolment Events. 

I want to apply for an Advanced Higher, Higher or National 5 in a Modern Language subject  

Our Advanced Higher, Higher and National 5 courses for Modern Languages are already open for applications. You can apply for up to two of these courses now.  

I want to apply for an Advanced Higher, Higher or National 5 that is not a Modern Language subject

You will be able to apply for all other Advanced Higher, Higher or National 5 courses at our enrolment events on Tuesday 8 June and Thursday 17 June 2021. 

I have the entry requirements and am able to pay for my course now

  1. Hi my name is James I’m looking for a standard grade English course in the evening. I work fulltime and trying to better myself. It seems to be very difficult to find anything that would be suitable to me. Any information would be appreciated.
