Top-up Degrees

If you have a Foundation degree or Higher National Diploma (HND), a Top-up degree is an excellent opportunity to boost your existing qualifications and open up new career possibilities. 

Despite only taking around one year to complete, those students who go on to graduate will do so with an award from the University of Lincoln.

A Top-up degree can expand on the knowledge and skills you have obtained while studying for your Foundation degree or HND and allows you to progress straight to the final year of a full undergraduate degree.

The University of Lincoln offers Top-up options on most of its undergraduate degrees.

Who can do a Top-up Degree?

Our Top-up degrees are designed for those who already hold a Foundation Degree (such as an FdSc or an FdA), or a Higher National Diploma (HND). These may have been attained at the University of Lincoln, another University, or at a college.
