HE Bulletin - Spring 2021

Top-up degrees

Published: 16/04/2021

The Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) 4.0 explicitly supports accreditation of top-up degrees, as well as programmes which can underpin top-up degrees, such as Foundation degrees and Higher National Diplomas, from which top-up degrees support progression.

The Engineering Council has published a Statement for Universities and other HE Providers on top-up degrees which can be found under 'Useful documents' on the EAB page. This Statement sets out the expectation that HEIs with accredited programmes or seeking accreditation of their programmes must ensure they clearly differentiate between top-up degrees and full duration programmes that permit direct entry to later years of study.
