Double the degree

October 3, 2003

Following your front-page article "Foundation drive takes off" ( THES , September 19), I would like to clarify that Edexcel continues to develop and promote the BTEC higher national diploma. We are adding BTEC foundation degrees to our portfolio. This is not a conversion of the HND.

The BTEC degree has been developed in line with foundation-degree criteria. Both the BTEC HND and the BTEC foundation degree will be on offer for the foreseeable future.
