You’re the future. Now create one you can thrive in.  


What is an undergraduate degree?

An undergraduate degree is the foundation for your future. It’s a thorough grounding in your chosen subject. You're an undergraduate student if you are studying for your first degree – usually a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc).

Many students opt for a full-time three year course – but it’s also possible to balance study and life, learning part-time. Another option is to build practical skills and proven experience on a paid placement year. It’s a great way to really test your new skills and knowledge, and you’ll make valuable workplace connections, too.
