How top-up degrees work

Top-up degrees are for those who already hold a Higher National Diploma (HND) or similar, and are looking to ‘top up’ their qualification to a full Degree. Top-up degrees are equivalent to the final year of undergraduate study and can be undertaken in a variety of ways, either full-time or part-time, online or on-campus.

Top-up courses require you to have an diploma qualification in a relevant subject; this means that the course of study should be closely tied to your previous qualification, however, it does not have to be the same subject. This flexibility allows our students to have a wide range of career prospects upon graduation.
