Level 5 Diplomas from ADL are delivered via Distance Learning and Home Study and because of this, are very popular with learners from all over the world. Whereas level 2 is at the level of a G.C.S.E. and level 3 is at the level of an A level, the majority of Diplomas at ADL are at Foundation degree and HND level. It is very important to remember that levels are an indication of how much you will learn in your course and not how hard the course is. Therefore, unless otherwise stated, you do not require G.C.S.Es, AS levels or A levels to take a Diploma with us.

All our 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.

Get a Qualification: Qualifications for our Diplomas, are endorsed and issued by TQUK (Training Qualifications UK) for which The Academy for Distance Learning is a recognised centre. TQUK is an Ofqual Approved Awarding Organisation and ADL’s recognition number with TQUK is:1709318. In order to maintain our Recognised Centre status, we are subject to yearly EVs (Evaluation Visits) to ensure that we conform to, and are meeting the high standards demanded by a company listed on the Ofqual Register. 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 Diploma, students will also receive an official transcript of their grades, signed and authorised by the Academy’s Registrar.
