BA or BA (Hons)

A "Bachelors" or "Honours" Level covers degrees with titles such as Bachelor of Arts, BA (Hons), Bachelor of Science, BSc (Hons), Bachelor of Engineering, BEng (Hons), Bachelor of Laws, and LLB (Hons). These are standard higher education qualifications recognised across the UK and Europe.

Usually you will enrol on either a BA or a BA (Hons). The 'Hons' represents 360+ credits of study typically over three years full time and often contains a substantial project or dissertation during the final year of study .The standard BA is usually known as an 'Ordinary' BA and is equivalent to 300 credits usually omitting the project or dissertation in the final year.

You can 'top up' a HNC, HND or Foundation Degree to an Honours Degree through a period of additional study. This is usually the equivalent of one year full time for HNDs and Foundation degrees or two years full time for a HNC.
