It all depends upon what you want to achieve, so come to one of our open events to see how we can help you.

What are Foundation degrees and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs)?

As well as being stand-alone qualifications, Foundation degrees and HNDs are courses which represent the first two years of an Honours degree programme. Once you achieve your Foundation degree or HND, you can often apply for a further year of study to ‘top up’ your qualification to a full Honours degree.

What are Top Up courses?

If you have a HND or Foundation degree, you can take a Top Up course to achieve a full Honours degree. Look out for ‘Top Up’ in the our course headings.

Will I get a ‘proper’ degree from Yeovil College University Centre?

Yes, all the degrees offered at Yeovil College University Centre are accredited by our partner universities. This means you will take classes at the University Centre and graduate in Yeovil, but your degree will be from the accrediting university.
