Did You Know You Can Study Abroad With An HND From (nigeria)? by Officialsetlinn: 9:55am On Jul 26, 2022
People have always wondered if it is possible to study abroad with an HND, or if it is even acceptable. The short and positive answer is, ‘YES’. The long answer is, ‘Yes you can, but like several other good things, it does not come easy.’ If you hold an HND, you do not have to beat yourself up or think you can not go further until you get a Bachelor’s Degree. The great news is, you can study abroad, get a scholarship and even get a Master’s Degree with an HND.

What to do with an HND

The most common path for HND holders is to continue their education, with over half opting for this option. In comparison, an HND provides a platform for slightly under 30% of students to continue full-time employment, most likely in their chosen field. Another 15% of students choose to mix the two, working and studying at the same time.

In the United Kingdom, an HND is a two-year course that leads to academic level 5. A bachelor’s degree, on the other hand, is a level 6 certification. This indicates that you only need one more year of full-time study to obtain your Bachelor’s degree. Many universities now offer specialist Top-up degrees to help you do just that.

What is a Top-up Degree?

Top-up degrees are for students who have finished an HND and desire to continue their education by enrolling in the last year of an honors degree program.
Although an HND is a valuable certification in its own right, depending on your career goals, you may decide that studying for a degree is worthwhile. A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree program that allows you to upgrade your current qualification to a complete Bachelor’s degree.

A top-up degree bridges the gap between your existing Level 5 certificate and a complete undergraduate Bachelor’s degree (Level 6). It is, in essence, the equivalent of the senior year of undergraduate studies. A three-year undergraduate degree in the United Kingdom is typical. A top-up degree, on the other hand, allows you to enter the final year stage if you already have an HND, allowing you to complete a Bachelor’s degree in only one year of study. Top-up degrees are accepted in the same manner as full degrees. Several schools in the United Kingdom have Top-up degree programs that facilitate earning a Bachelor’s degree in just a year!

Note: You can not do your top-up degree in a different field of study. You have to maintain the course you studied during your HND studies.

Schools that offer Top-up Degree Programs in the UK include:

London Metropolitan University
Middlesex University.
University of Greenwich.
University of the Arts London.
London South Bank University.
University of Westminster.
University of East London.
University of West London.

Coventry University, London.
University of Sunderland, London.
Bournemouth University.
University of Portsmouth
