The Degree Finder displays institutions around the world that have confirmed recognition of, or progression from, a BTEC Higher National qualification.

The search results show institutions who have provided specific progression pathways from BTEC Higher National qualifications to an undergraduate degree. The results show each degree and institution, as well as any entry criteria or application guidance. Additional information, such as English language requirements and tuition fees, can be found on the individual institutions websites.
