The Foundation Degree award is an end qualification within the national framework for higher education qualifications and is highly regarded in its own right.  It is however also intended as a progression route to honours degree and all programmes are developed with specified routes identified to achieve this, incorporating bridging programmes where necessary.  This appendix publishes a set of general regulations to provide for the progression of Edge Hill Foundation Degree graduates to the final year/stage of honours degree programmes.

Surprising Terms

  • Classification of the honours degree will be based on the marks achieved for honours degree study only, marks achieved under the foundation degree will not be included in the honours degree classification.
