Top Up Degrees


Top Up Degrees

Top Up degrees are designed for those who have successfully completed a Higher National Diploma (HND) or equivalent Diploma and want to study further in a bid to progress onto the final year of a degree programme.

An HND certificate is an excellent qualification in itself, depending on your career projection, you may decide that it’s worth studying a little further for a degree. Topping up your HND will typically take one further year of study via our robust options which you could consider; day (at the partnered university’s campus), evening (at the partnered university’s campus), weekend (at the partnered university’s campus) and online full-time (via this platform, available 24 x 7). You also have the option to spread your study over a longer period of time if you wish. We would be happy to discuss what might be the best option for you if you can call our counselling line which is opened 24 hours daily.

Renwesson has introduced a new programme for HND holders, Degree 3rd class graduates and Professional Diploma graduates. You can also use this opportunity to remedy your results if you are unable to standout academically during your first degree due to one challenge or the other.

There are a number of benefits in topping up your current qualification to a degree as it may open up further opportunities to you now and in the future. By completing the top up course you will help to demonstrate to an employer that you have the academic, organisational and management skills needed for your chosen career path.
