    Hi, I am looking at applying for a university degree, the company I work for are paying for me and want the degree to be part time, lasting three years, I will have options to continue after the three years but at this point it is best to say three is the maximum. My options as I see them are a foundation degree or a BA (hons) module based degree, now, what I'm not aware of and please tell me if I have the wrong idea; I am able to pick and choose which modules I study, therefore I can study as many or as few as I like from that respective year of study (As long as they combine to less than 90 points per year), this would be ideal for my companies needs but would I be able to get an award out of this, if it is even possible, the points would add up to around 120-150, which I am aware is around foundation certificate level.

    Would I get a certificate for each module completed?

    My main question is in terms of "registering for an award" what would I put?

    This is going to depend on the university regulations of the course you sign up for.

    The information should be available on their student handbook or on their website somewhere but if you can't find it then contact them to ask what flexibility there is over module choice and what exit awards you can get.
