UNIVERSITY OF GHANA TOP-UP COURSES

A Top-up degree is equivalent to the final year of an undergraduate degree. These courses are aimed at students who have previously completed a related foundation level degree (or equivalent, e.g. an HND) and they provide a route for students to achieve a Bachelors degree.

Top-up degrees enable students to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of a particular topic while also receiving an internationally-recognized qualification.

A Top-up degree does not allow you to top up a Bachelors degree to a Bachelors degree with Honors (a ‘BA (Hons) degree’).
