All our academic courses carry national recognition of OFQUAL, the UK regulatory body for Higher Education.
Graduating students can progress to a University programme, either to join at Undergraduate entry level, usually on completion of Level 3, or onto a “top-up” Degree, depending on the level of their OFQUAL programme. For an official breakdown of what each level means, please visit https://www.gov.uk/what-different-qualification-levels-mean/compare-different-qualification-levels
Top-up degrees are for those who already hold a nationally recognised Certificate or Diploma of an appropriate level and are looking to complete their qualification to a full Degree. For Level 3 programmes students can apply for Undergraduate entry for a full three-year programme. Level 4 requires final 2 years completion. At Level 5 it is the final year, Level 6 will give entry to post graduate programmes and Level 7 gives exemptions from certain Masters programmes including MBA.
Top-up courses require you to have a diploma qualification in a relevant subject; this means that the course of study should be closely tied to your previous qualification. However, it does not have to be the same subject. This flexibility allows our students to have a wide range of career or completion prospects upon graduation.
All of the academic courses offered by us are Ofqual approved and universities will generally accept the credits awarded to students. Students should make it clear to the University that the qualification is Ofqual RQF validated at the stated level/credit value. We can provide students with the requisite Ofqual documentation and transcript if required. Alternatively, students can visit the OFQUAL website to confirm the qualification. Each University will consider an application on its merits subject to their own specific entry requirements.
On completion of an course from our academy, students have the following options available to them.
However, students have a range of options in addition to ATHE agreements
