When it comes to choosing which degree you’d like to study at university, there are a number of options available. In this blog we’re going to explain the difference between a foundation degree and an honours degree to help you make the right choice.
A three-year full honours bachelor’s degree is a great choice if you’re looking to gain a full Level 6 qualification. With a higher UCAS tariff, this type of degree is perfect for you if you prefer a more theoretical approach to your studies combined with significant elements of practice. After graduating, you’ll be able to progress onto a postgraduate course or start your creative career.
A foundation degree is delivered in just two years of full-time study, and you’ll graduate with a Level 5 qualification.
They’re widely recognised qualifications in their own right and can help you get the career you want in the creative industries, but quicker than a full honours degree. Foundation degrees are designed to be industry-relevant and are endorsed by industry, offering you the opportunity to frame your practical experience alongside more academic aspects of the course.
Topping-up your Foundation degree
What’s great about a foundation degree is that on successful completion of your two years of study you have the flexibility to either go straight into industry or top-up to a full honours degree.
At Confetti, the majority of our foundation degrees have a full honours equivalent course – so you can choose to top-up with us or apply to another university.
