    Hi, I have a Associate Degree from overseas and has been given a statement of comparability that my degree is comparable to BTEC Level 5/SQA HND Standard/Foundation Degree standard, my question is how long it would take to become a full a degree.

    Upgrading from an HND to a Degree is generally a 1 year full time process. But this will depend on the compatibility of your previous study/subjects. Top-up courses (and courses allowing direct entry into year 3) tend to be focused in certain subjects where HNDs or Foundation Degrees are more common - but if you can't find any physical universities willing to accept you on to top up to a degree then the OU are extremely good at recognising previous study - http://www.open.ac.uk/study/credit-transfer/
