Top-up degrees

What are top-up degrees?

A top-up degree allows you to convert your existing qualifications into a full degree in one year. You need a relevant qualification such as an HND or foundation degree to start a top-up degree.

Why choose a top-up?

You can gain a full Sheffield Hallam degree, making you more attractive to employers. And if you choose to study the top-up at your college, you can gain a university degree without coming to university. You can also take your top-up degree at Sheffield Hallam, even if you’ve taken your foundation, HND or other qualification at a different institution.
