What Is a BSc Qualification?

A BSc qualification is earned when sufficient college or university level credits are completed for a bachelor’s degree in science. Depending on the institution and field of study, a bachelor’s degree takes three to five years to complete.

The focus of a bachelor of science degree is generally in a medical, technical or scientific area. A bachelor of arts degree focuses more on liberal arts and general education courses. Most bachelor’s degrees have the option to be studied “with honors,” meaning the student has attained a high level of achievement. A bachelor’s degree is considered an undergraduate level of education.
