Ad asked:

I have Diploma of associate Engineer in Electronic (DAE 3 years).what should I do? is am I eligible for Level 5


Thanks for your questions. We would need to look at the Engineering Diploma in Electronic, to find equivalency in the UK. it will also depend on the numbers of years of schooling you have done. Ideally, learners from overseas (outside UK/EU) who have done 12 years of schooling, take admission into a level 3 course. So if you have done the 3-year diploma in engineering, was it done after your 10th year of schooling? from which country? drop an email to admin at ukversity dot co dot uk

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
