A bachelor's degree is a diploma awarded at the successful completion of an undergraduate academic program. Students usually need about three to six years of study to complete it, though this can vary depending on the country you study in and the university attended. The qualification is designed to give you a thorough understanding of a subject. It helps you develop your analytical, intellectual and essay/dissertation writing skills. You'll also have much more of a say about the direction that your learning takes than you've had previously. One of the most common types of academic degree, a bachelor's degree is often the first degrees a student receives in his or her academic career. Job listings will include a bachelor's as a requirement for the position, although the exact field of study isn't always important. Advanced study may be needed for other academic or technical professions.
The Bachelor's Degree from a New Zealand university is structured differently than a Bachelor's degree from a US institution. A degree from a New Zealand universitiy is typically completed in three years and require a minimum of 360 points. At least 180 of these points must be above 100-level, and at least 72 must be at 300-level in your major subject compared to four years in the US. The first year of coursework in the US consists of general education courses and possibly introductory courses into your chosen major. In New Zealand students do not complete general education requirements. The degree consists of concentrated courses in your major that begin in your first semester.
There must be a major subject in every general degree, which means that you must satisfy the requirements specified for that subject.
