Higher Advanced Diploma Online

Level 6 Higher Advanced Diplomas from ADL can be studied online from home in a distance learning format. They are highly valued by learners and employers globally because they consist of twelve related certificate courses and usually include industry, research and/or workplace projects. As a comparative guide, level 2 is at the level of a G.C.S.E.,level 3 is at the level of an A level, level 4 is at the the level of a HNC and level 5 is at the level of a HND. Level 6 is at the level of a BS.c or BA, but not equivalent to one. Please note that levels are an indication of how much you will learn in your course; they are not a reflection of difficulty. For this reason, unless the Higher Advanced Diploma you’re interested in says differently, you do not require any G.C.S.Es, AS levels or A levels to take it.

All our Higher 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.

Get a Qualification: Qualifications for Higher Advanced Diplomas from ADL, 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 Higher Advanced Diploma, students will also receive an official transcript of their grades, signed and authorised by the Academy’s Registrar.
