This qualification is externally accredited by UK government Qualification and Examination regulator Ofqual and the Awarding body Qualifi Ltd issue certificates to the successful students, that means assessment costs (£640) of four units of 120 credits (60 ECTs) including certificate and transcript are payable separately to Cambridge Management and Leadership School, only if they ask, that may be at the end of the qualification.
