A guide to qualifications (HE version)
Most undergraduate degree courses lead to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BSc) qualification.
Foundation Degrees (FdA) and Higher National Diplomas (HND)
FdAs and HNDs provide an alternative route for those not wishing to study for a full bachelor’s degree. Shorter in study time, HNDs and FdAs have a vocational focus. Students can progress to the final year of a degree programme.
