Top Up degrees are for those who have successfully completed a Higher National Diploma (HND) or Foundation Degree and want to study further and progress onto the final year of an Honours degree programme.
Although a HND or a Foundation Degree is an excellent qualification in itself, depending on your career ambitions, you may decide that it’s worth studying a little longer for a degree. Topping up your HND or Foundation Degree will typically take one further year of study. We offer a range of study options which you could consider; day, evening or weekends. You also have the option to spread your study over a longer period of time if you wish. We would be happy to discuss what might be the best option for you.
There are a number of benefits in topping up your current qualification to an Honours degree. By completing the top up course you will help to demonstrate to an employer that you have the academic, organisational and management skills needed for your chosen career path. Topping up to a degree at Honours level may also open up further opportunities available to you in the future.
