    Study with confidence with our
    flexible degree pathway

    Our Flexible Degree Pathway offers you more choice and freedom on your journey to achieving your bachelor’s degree by allowing you to adapt your learning pathway as you go along. 

    We understand how busy life can get and that not everyone can commit to a full-time programme. Unlike traditional degree programmes, our Flexible Degree Pathway provides students with a set of pathways (certificate, diploma, foundation degree and bachelor’s degree) to earn their bachelor’s degree, so that they are able to combine their studies with family obligations and/or a job and create a pathway that works for their schedule. 

    How? 

    Our Flexible Degree Pathway gives you the flexibility to easily start, pause, resume and/or exit your studies at any one of four entry and exit points: certificate, diploma, foundation degree and BSc. This means that you do not need to stress if life gets in the way and you need to take a break from your studies because you can easily exit the programme and re-enter it at a later stage and continue from where you left off. 

    It also means that if you have prior qualifications and/or work experience that are relevant to the course, you can enter the programme at any one of our four entry points through Regonition of Prior Learning (RPL).

    But that’s not all. 

    Because the programme is made up of different pathways, students who enrol in this course also get to earn four, not one, fully accredited and globally recognised qualifications. What does this mean for you? It simply means that you get to obtain a certification for each stage of the pathway that you complete. By the end of the programme, you’ll have gained an MQF Level 5 Certificate, an MQF Level 5 Diploma, an MQF Level 5 Foundation Degree and an MQF Level 6 Bachelor of Science. Students may also be eligible for a fifth degree, awarded by Coventry University on select courses.
