A bachelor’s degree is a course of academic study leading to a qualification. They are sometimes known as ‘undergraduate’ or ‘first’ degrees.
It usually takes three to six years if studied full-time according to the country and faculty you are studying in. At the first-year level you choose a few subjects that interest you as an undergraduate student.
The specific title of this qualification will depend on the subject studied. Typical types could include Bachelor of Arts (BA), Science (BSc), Law (LLB), and Engineering (BEng).
The qualification is designed to give you a thorough understanding of a subject. It helps you develop your analytical, intellectual and essay/dissertation writing skills.
Graduation from this course will allow you pursuing higher postgraduate degrees, or go straight into your chosen career.
