A bachelor’s degree is a course of higher education academic study leading to a qualification such as a bachelor of arts (BA) or bachelor of science (BSc). They are sometimes known as ‘undergraduate’ or ‘first’ degrees.
A bachelor’s degree is designed to give learners a thorough understanding of a subject, and usually takes three years to complete full-time in England, Wales and Northern Ireland; in Scotland ‘ordinary’ bachelor’s degrees normally take three years while bachelor’s degrees with honours take four years.
Bachelor’s degrees are at level 6 on the FHEQ in England, Wales and Northern Ireland; Scottish ordinary bachelor’s degrees are at level 9 of the SCQF and honours bachelor’s degrees at level 10. All UK bachelor’s degrees are first cycle (end of cycle) qualifications in the Bologna Process.
Some awards titled bachelor’s for historical reasons are actually master’s-level degrees, similarly the Scottish MA is actually a bachelor’s degree that has retained its historical title.
