After the foundation degree is completed, students can then choose to either exit into employment or, enrol onto the BA/BSc/BDes/BEng (Hons) to take the final third year of study. This is sometimes referred to as the 2+1 model of higher education study, ideal if you wish to take your studies to the next academic level.

A foundation degree is two thirds of an Honour stages on qualification, designed in association with employers to combine academic study skills with industry related learning. You can gain professional and technical skills to further your career alongside a more traditional academic format. Foundation degrees usually focus on a particular job or profession and are intended to increase your professional and technical skills.

Choosing where to study your degree level course is a big deal - we understand that. There’s so much to think about when it comes to making your decision but, to help, we’ve put together a few of the many reasons why to choose Higher Education here at Hull College and highlight why we could be the perfect fit for you.

Studying A Degree At College Is A Rapidly Emerging Trend

One in eight students in the UK now complete a degree at college. Nowadays, employers are less concerned about where a qualification was gained and much more focused on the essential skills and competencies gained.
