A Top-up degree is the equivalent to the final year of undergraduate study, giving you a Bachelor’s level qualification by undertaking the final year with a university following completion of our diplomas.
As the name suggests, these courses enable you to ‘top-up’ from our diplomas to a full degree, with some options allowing you to do this online within 12 months.
When you graduate, you’ll be awarded either a BA (Hons) or BSc (Hons) depending on your chosen course, with your final award given by universities including:
Accreditation of Prior Learning
Accreditation of Prior Certified Learning (APCL) enables you to bring in to your degree pathway qualifications you have already achieved, if they are of the appropriate level and type. For example our level 4 diploma counts towards the credit for the first year of your degree, whilst the level 5 diploma counts towards the second year so that you can move onto the next ‘year’ or level.
