Hi, Just wondering what qualification will be awarded upon completion of the course if I choose the accredited option? Thanks, Rebecca

Hello Rebecca,

Thank you for your question. If you select study option A, your qualification will be endorsed and issued by TQUK (Training Qualifications UK), which is an approved awarding organisation on the Ofqual Register. Ofqual is a non-ministerial government department and TQUK is listed as recognised.

I hope this helps.

Best regards


( Alice Frith, 19/04/2016 ) Q:

Hi there, is this course (Health & Well-Being) worth anything in terms of UCAS points? Many thanks, Alice

( 19/04/2016 ) A:

Hi Alice. 

Our courses are delivered internationally and so are not part of any national framework. We concentrate on the quality of the learning, so that it will be recognised by employers and universities. Many students have used our courses to help them to gain a university place in the UK and abroad. If you want to use the qualification to help you in a university application, it is best to approach the university you are interested in first and ask them if they will accept our course towards their entry requirements.
