A Top-Up Degree will enable you to convert your existing qualifications and experience into a degree in up to one year.

With the right background, such as an HND or a foundation degree, you may be able to leapfrog the first stages of a course and graduate from Falmouth with the full qualification.

Applications for January 2023 will open shortly.
