Bachelor's Top-up Modules

To obtain this degree you need to accumulate a total of 360 credits. You can get these credits in 3 ways:

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

You can get credit for the qualifications you already have, such as a business-based Foundation degree, HNC, HND or international equivalent. You may also be able to get credit for relevant business-based work experience.

This is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). You can use RPL for up to 240 (two thirds) of the 360 credits you need to get your degree.

Contact us to find out if you can receive RPL credit for your current qualifications or work experience.


Work-based learning (WBL) projects

Most of your learning will come from work-based learning (WBL) projects. These are projects that are valuable to your employer, which you complete at work. For example, developing an IT solution for your organisation. You'll research, analyse and present a well-reasoned recommendation to your employer as a professional report.

These projects won't involve activities you do in your day-to-day job as they need to involve new learning for you. You'll do most of the work for these projects in your normal working hours.


Taught modules

You can study campus-based or distance learning modules to expand your knowledge and understanding or to develop new skills in a more structured way.

We'll also encourage you to take modules that develop your longer-term transferable skills. Previous students have studied modules such as Strategic Organisational Excellence and Business Transformation through Quality Management.

We use the best and most current research and professional practice alongside feedback from our students to make sure course content is relevant to your future career or further studies.

Therefore, some course content may change over time to reflect changes in the discipline or industry and some optional modules may not run every year. If a module doesn’t run, we’ll let you know as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative module.
