Bachelor’s Degree

A Bachelor’s Degree is available either full-time or part-time, usually three years (full-time) often with the opportunity of a placement year.

The BA and BSc are two of the most common types of Bachelor’s degrees. However, there are also a number of subject specific qualifications, most of which can be studied at Huddersfield.


One year full-time so you can build on a foundation degree or HND qualification and go on to degree level.

Integrated Master's Degree

Some courses combine undergraduate and postgraduate. Meaning you’ll study for four or five years with a placement.

Distance learning

Study from wherever you are using online learning tools and learn at your own pace, part-time or full-time.
