Academy Profession (AP) degree

An Academy Profession (AP) degree is an undergraduate academic degree. This comprehensive 2-year programme is similar to the first two years of a Bachelor's degree and awards 120 ECTS. 

Bachelor's top-up degree

Once you have completed your AP degree, you can take another 1½ years of full-time studies and be awarded 90 ECTS. Your AP degree programme combined with the Bachelor's top-up programme is equivalent to a full Bachelor's degree.
