Higher education vs further education

Glasgow City Development Plan, Published by Glasgow City Council in 2016, states: ‘Further education relates to courses taken at college, excluding degree level courses. Further education tends to be work-focused (vocational) and is usually fully funded. Further education includes: National Qualifications, City and Guilds vocational courses, Access courses and Modules. Higher education relates to degree level education and can be taken at university or college. Higher education includes: Degrees, Higher National Certificates (HNC’s), Higher National Diplomas (HND’s) and Postgraduate courses such as PhDs.’
