Please remember that levels are an indication of how much you learn, not how difficult the course is. Therefore, unless otherwise stipulated, you do not require G.C.S.Es, AS levels or A levels to take an Advanced Diploma with ADL.

All our Advanced Diplomas have been bench-marked to the UK FHEQ (Framework for Higher Education Qualifications) and the EQF (European Qualifications Framework) by ASIQUAL, a UK based awarding body offering qualifications that recognise both students’ academic achievements and evidenced skills.

The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) is a non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in England. Colloquially and publicly, Ofqual is often referred to as the exam “watchdog”.

In addition to receiving a TQUK/ADL Advanced Diploma, students will also receive an official transcript of their grades, signed and authorised by the Academy’s Registrar.
