Undergraduate degree

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

‘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 degrees

‘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)
