Degree Finder: Information for Institutions

Progression pathways

The Degree Finder allows students to search for available progression pathways towards achieving a degree after successfully completing a BTEC Higher National (HN) qualification. We work with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across the globe to raise awareness and recognition of HNs as a suitable means of entry onto a degree. Progression pathways can come in a variety of forms, indicated below:

  • Recognition: as an institution or university, you recognise HNs generally, but students will need to apply to see if they accept your specific HN. You can complete our recognition form here.
  • Progression agreements: as an institution or university, you provide guidance on which HN pathways align to which degree programme; and/or international credit transfers.
  • Top-up degrees: as an institution or university, you have specific top-up programmes for HN graduates to complete and gain an undergraduate degree.

If you are interested in providing recognition or formal progression pathways for your institution, and would like these to appear on our Degree Finder, please contact
