BTEC ASSESSMENTS AND AWARDS
Summary Of BTEC Program Levels And Accreditation

- BTEC is short name for Business and Technology Education Council. The level 5 and level 7 diplomas on the bachelor and master degree-pathways are awarded by BTEC Examination Board.
- BTEC is approved and accredited by OFQUAL and QCA. The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England. Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) maintains and develops the national curriculum and associated assessments, tests and examinations; and accredits and monitors qualifications in colleges and at work.
- The BTEC awards are recognized globally, affordable, practical and transferable to final year/s of Universities in the UK, all 50 US States, and Canada. Over 5,000 universities world-wide indicated they will take on BTEC HND and PgD students for final year entry.
- WES reviewed the Level 5 Higher National Diploma as 60 Credits towards the bachelor’s degree. That is, 'two years of undergraduate' and the BTEC Level 7 Professionals as equivalent to 'Graduate Certificates’. That is, one year of the master’s degree. Worldwide Education Services (WES) is used by nearly all US Universities and the US Government for assessing foreign credentials and determining their equivalency to US programs.

Students with BTEC HND qualifications may be entitled to the following credit exemptions from U.S. degree-level programs: 'Equivalent to up to 60 semester credits.
