An undergraduate course (known as a bachelor's degree) is usually the first degree students apply for and normally takes three years to complete.
You will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (BA), Sciences (BSc), Engineering (BEng) or Education (BEd), depending on your choice of subject.
The basic building block of the degree is a module. Each module is worth 30 credits and an honours degree is awarded to students who achieve 360 credits. You will be studying some core modules, which are compulsory parts of the course, and some optional modules, which you can choose according to your own interests.
Extended degrees provide applicants with an alternative route into higher education. If you do not have traditional qualifications or cannot meet the entry requirements for an undergraduate degree, you may still be able to gain entry by completing an extended degree. Extended degrees include a Year 0, which is also known as a foundation year. Once you successfully complete your first year of study you will progress into Year 1 of an undergraduate degree.
