ISDC offers qualifications at Foundation and HE level, fully accredited and awarded in collaboration with SQA, which can be delivered by centres interested in recruiting and teaching accredited programmes leading to UK university Top Ups, all offered flexibly and at a competitive cost.
Our programmes can generally be delivered anywhere in the world, face to face, online or via a blended approach.
Teaching centres are free to deliver to a timetable that suits their learners as long as they meet the requirements for guided learning hours. All assessment is handled by ISDC meaning our centres can concentrate on teaching rather than marking assessments.
The SQA is the national awarding body in Scotland, responsible for the development, accreditation and certification, assessment and certification of qualifications other than university degrees. SQA was established by the Education (Scotland) Act 1996, which is an Act of Parliament and as such is responsible to the Scottish Government.
ISDC works in partnership with the Scottish Qualifications Authority to deliver customised qualifications, which have been credit rated on the National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs) of Scotland, the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). The approved qualifications are quality assured and certificated by SQA.
The ISDC Board of Academic Advisors comprises a panel of industry professionals with extensive experience in the sectors of Higher Education, Strategy, Business Management, Data Analytics, Fintech, Assessment and the delivery and Quality Assurance of UK regulated educational programmes.
ISDC Awards has an international outreach which provides learners with Vocational and Academically focussed qualifications awarded by a globally recognised UK regulatory and awarding body .
ISDC Awards allow learners to earn credits to enable them to enter partner University programmes for the final year or years. This is a faster, more flexible, convenient and cost-effective route to obtain an International undergraduate degree either through online study or via a year spent in the UK or the respective countries.
