A Bachelor’s degree is the most common type of undergraduate degree – and can be studied straight after finishing higher education. A bachelor’s degree program is an undergraduate program that usually takes three or four years to complete if studied full-time. It’s classed as a level 6 qualification. 

Enrolling in a bachelor’s degree program requires that students choose a major area of study, such as science, finance, social science, engineering and so forth. 

Entry requirements may vary from course to course – but you’ll usually be required to gain a certain number of UCAS points to get started. These can be made up of a variety of level 3 qualifications, including A levels, BTECs, and Diplomas. 

The specific title of this qualification will depend on the subject studied. Typical types could include Bachelor of Arts (BA), Science (BSc), Law (LLB), and Engineering (BEng). Graduation from this course will allow you carry out postgraduate study, or go straight into your chosen career. Graduates from a bachelor’s degree program are qualified to work in entry or management-level positions, depending on the field.
