The General degree

The Master of Arts (General) and Bachelor of Science (General) degrees are entry programmes exclusively available to students coming to the University through alternative routes, such as Access courses, HNCs, HNDs or other nonstandard qualifications. 

The General degree is offered as a number of supported pathways which will provide the option to progress into a named Honours degree at the end of second year.

These routes are also available to those who have experienced mitigating circumstances during their time at school, which may have affected grades, and have now progressed to a further education college.
