We offer several types of degree. Different degrees require varying lengths of time to complete and provide qualifications at different levels.
An Undergraduate degree is any Bachelor-level qualification from a university. We teach a number of Bachelor degrees, including:
- Bachelor of Arts (BA)
- Bachelor of Science (BSc)
Most of our bachelor degrees are honours degrees, which means that if you pass with a good grade, your final degree qualification will be ‘BA (Hons)’, ‘BSc (Hons)’ or similar.
Your final grade will determine your degree classification:
- First Class Honours (First)
- Second Class Honours, upper division (2:1)
- Second Class Honours, lower division (2:2)
- Third Class Honours (Third)
- Ordinary degree (Pass)
Undergraduate degree courses usually take three years to complete.
‘Top-Up’ degrees are for students who already have high-level qualifications, and want to ‘upgrade’ their qualification to the level of a full Bachelor degree. Top-Up courses usually take a year to complete.
‘Postgraduate degree’ is the name given to any higher education course which requires an undergraduate degree.
Examples of taught postgraduate degrees include:
- Master of Arts (MA)
- Master of Science (MSc)
- Master of Business Administration (MBA)
