Regulated versus Endorsed Programs

  • Regulated qualifications and endorsed programs follow the same curriculum and content. At Level 5 they are at a level of learning equivalent to Year 2 of a three year UK undergraduate (bachelor) degree course, and recognized worldwide for entry-level industry employment.  At Level 4 they are at a level of learning equivalent to Year 1, and an excellent gap year option.
  • Ofqual regulated qualifications are listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and recognized by all UK universities. Graduates may apply the qualifications to advance to undergraduate degrees in film and media in the UK, as well as in other countries.  Graduates of the endorsed courses of learning who wish to pursue further or higher education in the UK and elsewhere could seek admission but strictly on their own merits and at the sole discretion of the institution applied to.
  • Regulated courses are taught and assessed entirely in English and so demand a significantly higher English language standard, both written and spoken, of candidates.  Endorsed courses may be taught and assessed by GeniusQuestTM in English and/or the local language.
