SQA Advanced Qualifications are internationally recognised higher education qualifications at certificate and diploma level. They provide you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills such as information technology, communication, and problem solving that a university or employer would expect you to have. They have been developed to meet the skills needs of employers and the requirements of education professionals. An SQA Advanced Diploma is equivalent to the first two years of a degree and enables advanced entry into many undergraduate degree programmes in SQA’s partner universities and higher education institutions.
SQA qualifications are recognized on the Scottish Credit Qualification Frameworks (SCQF) and offers many certificates including the two-year Advanced Diploma (SCQF Level 8) and one year Advanced Certificate (SCQF Level 7).
Students have the opportunity to get involved in activities and events across campus, as well as developing knowledge and building the skills students need to be the difference and stand out to potential employers.
