SQA Progression partners

<

SQA Higher National Diploma (HND) graduates from around the world are looking for an opportunity to study at an institution like yours.

SQA Progression Partners gain access to a highly talented selection of HND students from international SQA centres through our Diploma to Degree programme.

Diploma to Degree

Our Diploma to Degree programme is a well-established and respected route for HND graduates to progress directly onto the second or third year of a related undergraduate degree.

Many HND students have studied in their own country before wanting to move abroad to complete a related degree, entering directly into second or third year. This option can be a cost effective route for students to gain international experience and achieve a degree.

Higher National Diploma (HND)

The SQA HND is a short cycle Higher Education qualification designed in partnership with colleges, universities, employers and industry experts.

With practical approaches to learning, the HND qualification prepares students for employment and the option to progress to further study at a Higher Education Institution.

HND International Recognition

SQA HND is also widely recognised around the world as being the equivalent to the first two years of undergraduate study.

The World Education Services (WES US and Canada) considers the Higher National Diploma as comparable to completion of two years of undergraduate study at a regionally accredited institution in the US and Canada.
