Types of Level 3 Diplomas
Students can enrol on 2 different types of Diploma at Oxford Learning College.
Accredited courses offer the student academic credits which are not UCAS points but are tallied towards the hours of work dedicated to completion of their award and are recognised by many Universities and colleges. These courses offer two pieces of in depth coursework which are due for submission within one year of the enrolment date.
The Licenced or Professional courses offer an online examination upon completion of their studies which can be opted into at any point within the year of enrolment. The online exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions; you must correctly answer at least 27/50 for a successful pass, 32/50 for a merit, or 40/50 for a distinction.
Which Course Should You Choose?
This all depends on what you want to do with the qualification. If you are looking to improve your CV for a career change or promotion, then the Professional Level 3 Diploma is your best option to choose.
If you are looking to go to University or study the subject matter at a higher level, the Accredited Level 3 Diploma would be better suited to your needs as it is similar in nature to A Levels and is accepted by many Universities around the world.
