A BA Top-Up is the equivalent of the final year of a full-time Bachelors degree, delivered by us straight to your screen via our flexible online learning environment.

The course involves a combination of assessments and independent study. Assessments are practical and applied, including work-place assignments and case studies.

With work-based learning as a core element, this course will benefit both you and your employer. The practical nature of this course has resulted in many of our students gaining promotion on completion of the degree.

This course will increase your confidence in business and personal development as well as your earning potential. Throughout the course, you’ll have access to experienced teaching staff, many of whom are practitioners in the industry, to assist you in your studies.
