What are degree-level courses?

+ Higher National Certificates and Diplomas (HNCs/HNDs) are employer-focused qualifications that can also provide a route onto the second year of an honours degree.

+ Foundation Degrees integrate academic and work-based learning through close collaboration with employers to provide an industry-relevant qualification. They also provide a route through to top-up degrees.

+ BA/BScBEng (Hons) top-up degrees provide successful B&FC Foundation Degree graduates with the option of 'topping up' their degree to an Honours degree in just one year.

+ BA/BScBEng (Hons) degrees available at B&FC are traditional 3 year programmes that lead to the award of an Honours degree.

+ Higher and Degree Apprenticeships combine skilled on-the-job training with higher level study to allow those already in employment to move their career forward.

+ Postgraduate programmes are typically studied after an Honours degree, such as our Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
