Qualifications explained

Hartpury University Study Banner Accordion Student Lecture

Bachelor of Science (BSc Hons) or Bachelor of Arts (BA Hons)

The most popular undergraduate qualifications. Usually pursued after A-levels, diplomas or international equivalent qualifications.

Bachelor’s degrees come in science (BSc) or arts (BA) subjects. They're perfect if you’re keen to develop more specialist knowledge in a particular subject while gaining skills and experience ready for your dream career.

Our degrees come with Honours (Hons). Although ‘Honours’ isn’t a grade, it is a mark of quality. It will help your job application stand out to an employer or your application for postgraduate study.


Foundation Year

A foundation year is ideal if you need to develop subject-specific skills or a qualification ready for degree-level study. On successful completion you'll progress onto the first year of your degree, alongside other first-year students.

Foundation Degree (FdSc)

A foundation degree will support you to enter the vocational part of your industry. At the end of the foundation degree, you should be ready to enter employment or progress onto a one-year level 6 top-up qualification to achieve a full BSc (Hons) degree.


If you have a HND, foundation degree, or equivalent, including industry experience, our top-up degrees allow you to achieve a full BSc (Hons) degree in just one year.


Also known as a Diploma in Professional Studies, this vocational qualification gives students something to stand apart from other candidates when applying for jobs. It provides a strong foundation in a specific subject area, combining academic knowledge with practical skills.


An MSci is an exciting qualification, combining undergraduate and postgraduate-level study in one.

You’ll study your full BSc (Hons) degree, with an extra year of study enabling you to pursue your subject in more detail and develop advanced research skills.
