One-level degree structure

core definition

One-level degree structure is where a single programme of study results in a final (masters-level) award.

explanatory context

The one-level structure is opposed to a bachelor-masters or other dual structure.

analytical review

The terminology is not widely used. In their review, Campbell and Rozsnyai (2002, p.133) define it as:

One-level degree structure: Also: one-tier, or one-cycle, whereby one course of studies leads to one level of degree (either in unitary or binary systems) as opposed to a two-tier degree structure, which offers a shorter degree programme and a choice of post-graduate programmes.
