Honours Degree

In 2014 we gained approval from Plymouth University to deliver a full Honours Degree in History, Heritage and Archaeology. This is testament to the high-quality teaching enjoyed by our students, and the national standing and expertise of our tutors.

If you successfully complete your Foundation Degree in History, Heritage and Archaeology, you will be able to top-up your qualification to the full Honours Degree at Strode College. Students who have followed similar programmes at other institutions can also join Strode College to complete their studies and obtain an Honours Degree.


Foundation Degrees

Our Foundation Degrees are delivered in partnership with Plymouth University. Many students progress to complete their BA (Hons) Degree at Strode or Plymouth University; they may go on to postgraduate study. Others use this qualification to proceed directly into employment.

Foundation Degrees are vocationally-based qualifications designed to integrate academic study and work-based learning. They provide an outstanding opportunity to present yourself to an employer and to learn the most up-to-date business or sector methods. They are designed for those who are, or who wish to be, working at the higher technical or associate professional level. They are a key part of the government’s strategy to increase the proportion of the working population holding a Level 4 or 5 qualification. They can form part of a Higher Apprenticeship.

Foundation Degrees can be studied fulltime - two days at college each week for two years, or part-time over four years, depending on the course. You can also study individual modules.
