If you’re about to complete your Higher National Certificate (HNC) or Diploma (HND) then you’re already well on your way to achieving a degree at Abertay! Every year over 250 students choose to continue their studies at degree level and account for around 6% of our total student population.
In most cases, with an HNC (with 120 credits at level 7) you will be considered for entry to year two of a relevant degree and with an HND (with 120 credits at level 8) entry to year three.
If you want a complete change of direction with an HNC/HND you will be considered for entry to year one of any of our degrees, provided you meet any subject-specific requirements listed.
To help with the move from college to university we’ve put in place a range of support mechanisms, including our Bridging Programme and our Student Academic Support facilities. For detailed information about your degree programme and the modules you will be studying, please follow the directions further down this page.
