Degree Plus

 Route A: Full Accreditation

The programmes which represent Route A to the Degree Plus Award typically lead to a Certificate or Diploma in their own right. For example, students who successfully complete the Study USA programme gain the Certificate in American Business Practice.   They require significant input and work. Each year, many Queen’s students undertake other courses or programmes in addition to their degree.  For example, some students spend a year studying at a university in the United States under the Study USA programme.  Programmes and activities like this allow students to acquire the skills and experience that the Degree Plus Award recognises, so, if you are doing such a programme and meet the criteria set out by the Programme Provider then you will be eligible for the Degree Plus Award.  

Below is a list of courses that have full accreditation for the Degree Plus Award. 


Any activity not mentioned above will automatically fall into Route B

You must meet the criteria for Route A that is set out by the programme provider. If you are involved in any of the above programmes but do not meet the criteria for Route A then you can use it as one activity in a Route B application.
