How To Apply

Applying for an Undergraduate Course

An undergraduate course is a first university degree qualification and will usually have a prefix of BA (Hons) or BSc (Hons). There are some courses classified as Integrated Masters, these are also undergraduate but have a built in year which includes postgraduate level study, giving you a Masters qualification on graduation. Undergraduate courses are usually 3 years full-time (or 6 years part-time). Integrated Masters, Degrees with Industrial Placement (sometimes known as Sandwich Degrees) or Degrees with a Foundation Year will be 4 years full-time in duration.

There are also HND’s or Foundation Degrees, these are 2 years full-time in duration. After completion, in order to obtain a full degree you would then need to undertake a Top-Up Degree course which is 1 year full-time – totaling 3 years full-time altogether.

Undergraduate degrees usually start in September in any given year, however some subjects will also offer alternative start months like January or March.

PGT courses are usually one year full-time (or 2 years part-time) in duration and are delivered and assessed similarly to undergraduate degrees through a series of taught modules and may include independent research in a specialist area. PGT study can lead to one of three qualifications: Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) or Master’s (MA or MSc).

PGR represents a formal area of study that is recognised by the University. PGR study can vary in duration depending on the route you take. There are Masters degree by research (MRes or MPhil), whereby a majority (if not all) of the degree is by thesis and some may include an element of coursework. Other more common resulting qualifications arising from postgraduate research study are Post Doctorates like PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), EdD (Doctor of Education), DProf (Doctor of Professional Practice) or Doctor of Health & Social Care Practice.

Postgraduate degrees usually start in September in any given year, however some subjects will also offer alternative start months.
