Studying Level 3 Diplomas

Level 3 Diplomas

You wouldn’t be alone in questioning what a Level 3 Diploma is and how it can help you and your career prospects. Usually, people think there is only one way of progressing your learning and career after you leave school. And that, of course, would be going to university and getting a Degree.

However, when you look at the cost of getting a Degree, you can’t be blamed for not wanting to put yourself in the position of such debt and so many years of commitment. More and more people are turning their backs on the Degree route and looking at Diplomas as a way to gain qualifications.

A Level 3 Diploma is equivalent to an A-Level, so it’s the same level of difficulty, but instead of having examinations and a strict timetable to follow, you are free to study a Level 3 Diploma in a way that fits you, if you have more time to study, you can even complete the course in less than a year. With open enrolment also available, it’s almost a no-brainer to opt for Level 3 Diplomas over A-Levels.

And the best bit? Because Level 3 Diplomas are more varied in subject, instead of being stuck with just the usual English, Mathematics or Physics type courses, you can opt to do Anatomy and Physiology or Business Administration or Zoology, with over 90 courses available, the world is your oyster with studying Level 3 Diplomas.

What about when I finish my Level 3 Diploma?

Well that’s the time you start looking at the higher level of Diplomas, such as the Level 4 and 5 Diplomas which are equivalent to a Foundation Degree and can be used either in a professional manner or educational manner on a top-up Degree to convert your qualification into a full Bachelor’s Degree. Again, because Diplomas have open enrolment and aren’t tied to examination periods, you are free to study and learn your chosen course on a timeline that suits you.
