There are many different qualifications in the UK today, available at many different levels.

View our 'Qualifications Answered' leaflet, which explains levels and names of courses, their equivalents, and should help you to plan your next level of study.

If you would like advice on your next step, please contact our Careers Advisor on 01793 498106 or use our online Contact Us form.

If you already have qualifications gained outside the UK, our Careers Team can also help you to find the UK equivalent. You can also contact UK NARIC - the National Agency responsible for providing information, advice and expert opinion on skills and qualifications from over 180 countries worldwide. For a fee they can help you validate/translate your existing overseas qualification. Go to for more information.

We use The National Agency information, managed on behalf of the UK Government, which provides the only official source of information on International qualifications to organisations recruiting from overseas and to individuals wishing to work or study in the UK.

I have gone from not feeling successful in life, to feeling feel like I can take over the world. I’m going to take this moment and shape it into something special. If something is not for you or you don’t have the passion for it, don’t waste your potential or time and make that change.
