Top-Up is of interest to many people. In order to figure out what top up is and how you might benefit, here are some typical questions:
- Have you studied part of a course somewhere else but did not finish?
- Are you an ‘All But Dissertation’ (ABD) student?
- Did you take modules/courses for credit?
- Have you completed courses as part of your work/career but do not have a full qualification?
- Have you career achievements, knowledge and skills?
If you answered ‘Yes‘ to any of the above, then, you will be eligible for a Top-Up.
Essentially, a Top-Up is a way of completing requirements towards a qualification or degree by taking into account the study you have already completed. For example, you may have completed a large part of a degree at another institution and only need an additional 40 credits to graduate. However, your studies were interrupted and you could not finish the programme. Perhaps, now you’re in a position to pick up where you left off. AND you may have specific ‘competencies’ that will further add to your credits.
Well, then, you’re in the right place. Read on.
