Will I still have to study two years more to get my Extended Diploma qualification at Level 3?

We would normally expect you to study two more years to get the Extended Diploma qualification at Level 3.  This would then enable you achieve the academic entry requirements for entry to the Degree level programmes.  If you are aged 16 at commencement of Level 2 this route would normally enable you to access the three years of further education study at no cost.

With older students we may advise that they do one-year of the Level 3 Diploma and then join the Degree including Foundation year as the second year of the Level 3 course would normally be self-funded.
