UK universities and colleges offer thousands of excellent study programmes, leading to qualifications that are respected and acknowledged by employers, academic and research institutions on a global level.
At the undergraduate level, the main qualifications offered are:
- Bachelor’s or Undergraduate Degree: This is the most common type of study program, and we can also say it's the most traditional one. The program is designed to help you gain a thorough understanding of a subject or two subjects (if you are doing a joint degree). Studied full-time, it usually takes three years to complete (four in some cases).
- Foundation degree: Foundation degree is a vocational higher education course which may take one or two years to complete and which can be a stand-alone certification or a way to gain access to a Bachelor Degree for which you were not initially eligible with your previous educational background.
- Diploma of Higher Education: Two years, full-time DipHE courses usually are equivalent to the first two years of a degree and can often be used for entry to the third year of a related degree course.
- Certificate of Higher Education: Focuses on either a particular profession or field of academic study. Equivalent to the first year of a full honours degree, they are the most basic level qualifications that can be gained in higher education.
- Higher National Diploma (HND): A two-year course which, if completed with high grades, can lead to the third year of a degree.
At postgraduate qualifications, you have the Master degrees you can also apply with Ucademics.
