Our extended degree is for students who did not achieve the grades required for their undergraduate programme of choice, or are entering university after a notable period of time out of education.

The programme offers support and guidance in developing the skills required for degree-level study.

The extended degree will focus specifically on communication (oral and written), critical thinking, research, independent study, digital and employability skills.

The modules are designed to embed the development of these skills within the broad areas of business, communications, humanities and social sciences.
