( Julia , 22/05/2018 ) Q:

Hello, I would like to pay for and start this course, but I wanted to ask if I am allowed to considering I only have a high school diploma and no higher degree certification. I have been working in the tourism industry but would like to achieve a diploma. Also upon completion of this course What level will I be able to start from at university ? Thank you Julia

( 05/06/2018 ) A:

Hello Julia,

Thank you for getting in touch.

You don't need any prior qualifications to take our courses because they are for career and professional development. They are not designed to be a prelude to university, but universities have accepted them because of the quality of learning they provide. That said, although your diploma will be endorsed and issued by an Ofqual recognised awarding organisation (select study option A), it is unregulated. Therefore, you will need to approach universities yourself, to see if they will accept it and if so, what year you can go in at.

Best regards


( Shwellen, 31/10/2013 ) Q: Hi, I would like to know the course duration and the accreditation body of your academy. Thank you!
( 04/11/2013 ) A: Hello Shwellen, The course duration is dependent on how quickly you wish to cover the material. The Advanced Diploma represents 800 hours of study, which amounts to roughly 15 months if you are doing 10 hours of study per week. This is a lesson and assignment every week on average, which is a very good pace to keep. The accreditation body is the IARC which you can read about on the Recognition section of our webpage.
