    Sorry if this is in the wrong area but I hope you can help me.
    I'll be qualifying later this year with a DipHE and in the future I hope to top it up to BSc. However, I was wondering how the grade for the BSc would be calculated. Would it be done just from the BSc year or would it take into account my DipHE grade?

    Suggest you email some University Depts offering the course you want to do and ask them.

    It depends on the university you want to study at because they are the ones accrediting your previous study (i.e. saying they accept you have studied x amount and can just top up to a full degree). It makes a lot of sense for them to just give you a classification based on your final year with them, but this is what most universities do anyway (e.g. my third year counted for 80% of my total marks).

    If you are doing something healthcare related then there might be implications if you are aiming for professional registration (i.e. you cannot avoid doing certain stuff which means you cannot simply top-up your degree).

    Thanks that's really useful. My DipHE means I can register so the BSc would be extending my knowledge and giving me a better qualification and make it easier to progress in the future.

    Hi, I know its been a long time since you have done your top-up degree but how was it compared to the HND and if you moved out did you find suitable accommodation. Reason I am asking is because I will be doing a top-up in a few weeks.
