    Yes, you will be considered for admission at University College Birmingham (UCB) to study for their digital marketing BA top-up degree.

    They require “120 ECTS or equivalent (European Credit Transfer)” which is equivalent to two years of full-time study at a recognised university. Since you have an HND from Nigeria, assuming you studied for two years, you would have fulfilled this requirement.

      Thank you, Morand!

      So, after the top-up which is suppose to take 1year, do I have to apply for masters or am I automatically enrolled for masters

        Application for masters degree after completing a top-up is optional. You will be awarded a bachelors degree after completing the top-up. You can get a job with a UK bachelors degree.

        Also, note that you will be eligible to apply for a Graduate Visa after your top-up degree has been awarded. The graduate visa will allow you to stay in the UK for two years to find a job after you graduate.

        However, if you want to continue to study and do a masters degree after your top-up, you will need to apply for it.
