SQA Advanced qualifications

SQA Advanced qualifications are Higher Education qualifications meeting the needs of employers and enabling advanced entry into many undergraduate degree programmes in universities and higher education institutions across the world. They are developed in partnership with colleges, universities and industry.

Our Diploma to Degree programme supports progression for SQA Advanced Diploma students through our network of university partners around the world. SQA works with higher education institutions to increase opportunities and offer advanced entry to SQA students who wish to progress onto second or third year study of an undergraduate degree.

SQA is supporting and strengthening direct degree routes for SQA Advanced Diploma graduates by developing diploma to degree pathways with highly recognised universities all over the world.

There are SQA Advanced qualification courses in a range of subjects from Business and Computing to Hospitality and Retail so, whatever you need, there is a qualification to suit. To find out more, visit our About SQA Advanced Qualifications web page and/or contact your SQA regional manager. 

The England, Wales and Northern Ireland page of the SQA website has recently been updated and now includes a link to the SQA Advanced Qualifications home page. Additionally, the ‘Explore SQA Advanced Qualifications’ graphic includes a link to the ‘About SQA Advanced Qualifications’ web page.
