A bachelors degree (sometimes known as an 'ordinary' or 'first' degree) is a course of academic study leading to a qualification such as a Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (BSc). Post-graduate studies may follow a bachelors degree, which can lead to a range of PG awards including masters degrees (MA or MSc). Degrees may be delivered full-time or part-time.

The bachelors qualification is designed to give you a thorough understanding of a subject. It helps you develop your analytical, intellectual and essay or dissertation writing skills. You'll also have much more of a say about the direction your learning takes than you've had previously.
