No, ‘equivalent’ means another recognised academic qualification (e.g. from a different country) that is 2.2.

Okay, thanks! Let me gently apply for pre masters with my HND
- Member5 April 2022 at 11:19 am
Pre-masters is another option, but it might be more expensive I guess? You will first have to complete a year of pre-masters and then complete another year of masters which is 2 years in total, and the fee might be higher.
Whereas, a top-up is one year and only one year of tuition fees.

Wait, wait! Thought I’ll only get a BA or BSc with top-up not Masters.
- Member5 April 2022 at 11:35 am
Yes, if you complete a top-up, you will be awarded a BA or BSc undergraduate degree.

Okay! But some top ups start from the 2nd year instead of only final year

Yes that’s true, but you have an HND so you can start from year 3. My cousin has an HND from kwara state university and she got admission to study finance in nottingham, a one year top-up course.

Thank you Edy for the time.
What is the difference applying from UCAS and directly from the school
- Administrator8 April 2022 at 11:26 pm
Applying through UCAS is usually required when you are applying for an undergraduate course, and sometimes a top-up degree. But usually, you can apply for a top-up degree directly to the university. UCAS is only advisable if you want to apply to multiple universities (up to 5), using one application. You can read our help article here about UCAS.
