    It depends entirely on the university where you took it. A lot of places will allow you to convert to the degree course and do some extra work to get a full degree, but not everywhere. Ask the institution.

    Of course. Try a top-up course. Bournemouth does a lot of those for example. Look up the unis you're interested in

    Some universities offer a top-up program which only runs for a year. The top-up program will technically convert your certificate->diploma->higher diploma (which is 2 years) to a BSc (which gives you 3 yrs total college education.) The problem though is that, most of these universities that offer top-up aren't the best ones around.

    That is true. But if you did a foundation course I don't think you'll mind about going to a lower uni. Bournemouth is top in the country for travel and tourism though, so not always the case (my mate is going there :woo: )

    To add to what other people have already mentioned then you may be able to transfer these credits to the Open Uni and therefore "top it up" to a degree (honours or non-honours depending on how many leve 3 credits you have). It may be possible to do it in one year but this will depend on your module choices and whether you go full time or not.
