BA, BSc and BEng degrees

An undergraduate course (known as a bachelor's degree) is usually the first degree you apply for and normally takes three years to complete if studying full-time.

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 usually worth 30 or 15 credits and an honours degree is awarded to students who achieve 360 credits. You will study some core modules, which are compulsory parts of the course, and some optional modules, which you can choose according to your own interests.

There is also the option to study an undergraduate degree that includes a foundation year if you can't meet the entry requirements for a standard three-year undergraduate degree.
