DkIT's Higher Certificate and Ordinary Degree qualifications are designed to be terminal qualifications and to prepare people for employment.
However, a significant number of students use these qualifications to progress to Ordinary Degree or Honours Degree Courses in the Institute and beyond. Whatever level you enter a programme, you can choose to graduate at that level or you can progress to the next level, providing you get the required grades.
To illustrate what this means, if you enter at Higher Certificate Level 6 you can choose to either graduate with a Higher Certificate or, you can progress on to Level 7 and beyond. Every student in DkIT can progress to at least Honours degree (Level 8) and there are many opportunities to progress to PhD Level 10.
Level 8 Honours Degree (post-Ordinary Degree) Programmes: In order to proceed to one of our add-on honours degree programmes you will need to have completed an ordinary degree course in DkIT, or equivalent elsewhere, and to have obtained the relevant qualifying standard at award level.
Please see the individual course pages for specific entry requirements for all Add-On courses.
