All of the academic courses offered by UNIECA are Ofqual approved, and universities will generally accept the credits awarded to students. Students should make it clear to the University that the qualification is OFQUAL RQF validated at the stated level/ credit value. UNIECA can provide students with the requisite Ofqual documentation and transcript. Alternatively, students can visit the Ofqual website https://register.ofqual.gov.uk/ to confirm the qualification.

Generally, Level 3 is Undergraduate entry, Level 4 first year Degree, Level 5 second year Degree, Level 6 Graduate level and Level 7 Post Graduate level.
