it may be the same degree at the end but I can imagine the people who do the full degree all the way through come out of it with a better knowledge and more experience.
All HND students have the opportunity to do the extra year to top it up to a full degree. I belive the HND is more vocation based, so a HND can certainly be more beneficial than a full degree in some cases!
