Top Up Degrees
What is a top up degree?
You can top up your existing qualification to a BA (Hons) Degree from the University of Hertfordshire in just 16 months.
If you have a relevant HND or Foundation Degree, you can apply for direct entry into Level 6 (the final year) of your chosen BA (Hons) Degree. You may also be eligible for direct entry if you have professional experience in your area of study or a related subject. Contact us for clarification.
Since you’ll be entering in the final level, the cost is the same as for a single level of degree study (£4,500). You can see what you’ll be studying by visiting the Level 6 section of your course page, where you’ll also find more info on funding and start dates:
Top Up Masters
You can also choose to top up your existing HND or Foundation degree (or equivalent experience) into an MA qualification in under four years.
This way, you’ll graduate with two qualifications by studying the honours level of the BA course, before progressing on to Masters study.
Doing your Top Up Masters (£9000) will save you £1500 compared to studying the Top Up Degree and MA separately. To see what you’ll be studying, see the Level 6 BA (Hons) links above, and the course page below for your chosen MA:
- MA Graphic Communication
- MA Illustration (Visual Communication)
- MA Interior Design
- MA Photography (Visual Communication)
