Types of degree:

Honours Degrees:
An Honours Degree has 360 Higher credits. In some subjects, the Honours Degree is studied full-time over three years. In others, a Foundation Degree is studied first and this can then be topped up to an Honours Degree with one or two years' further study.

Foundation Degrees:
As a general guide, a Foundation Degree has 240 Higher Education credits. Most Foundation Degrees require a student either to be working or to have a substantial work experience placement.

Unlike some undergraduate programmes, they're not just about theory. They provide you with the knowledge and skills that employers need, by combining theory with its application to the workplace. This will help you to enhance your employment opportunities and to prepare for more responsibility or promotion.

Higher National Certificate (HNC):
A Higher National Certificate (HNC) is a work-related university-level qualification normally studied part-time for two years or full-time for a year. On completion, you could progress onto a Foundation degree.
