Scottish Qualification Authority
The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is an international leader in education and qualifications development. We have over 100 years' experience in developing qualifications and qualifications systems, and over 20 years' experience of working internationally in partnership with schools, colleges, universities, employers, training organizations, industry professionals, professional bodies, and governments.
Through these partnerships SQA continuously enhances its skills and expertise through mutual and shared learning and in turn shares its knowledge, technical expertise and skills and other educational pursuits for the global good.
As a part of these partnerships, SQA supports and enhances the mobility of students seeking to complete part of their degree at an overseas university. The SQA Diploma to Degree Programs are well established and has made progressions for SQA students possible into Universities in several countries for their undergraduate degree (Bachelor’s) programs.
SQA helps individuals realize their potential and achieve their ambitions by providing a wide range of high-quality, internationally recognized qualifications, and associated services.
Based in Glasgow, SQA is also recognized by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) in England, UK and is set out by an erstwhile and thereafter amended Act of Scottish Parliament. SQA is also one of the four partners of The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SQCF) which is the national credit transfer system for all levels of qualifications in Scotland, UK.
