Route A

Degree Plus: Route A

Route A requires the student to complete all elements of 1 approved substantial and intensive activity.  It will take several days, or even months, for each student to finish a Route A activity. 

Once the student has fully completed requirements for an approved Queen's Degree Plus Route A activity, they automatically qualify for Degree Plus (or Graduate Plus for PGTs/Researcher Plus for PGRs) accreditation at graduation.

Each Route A approved activity provider advertises, selects for, delivers, and assesses the experience (this includes setting the deadlines for completion).  Queries relating to these processes should therefore be referred directly to the provider.  The provider also confirms the list of successful candidates to the Degree Plus Team who update each student's QSIS record to ensure that a certificate is presented to them at their graduation ceremony.

Details of the STEPS TO TAKE FOR DEGREE PLUS ROUTE A or ROUTE B ACCREDITATION are provided in your MyFuture account.
