When I pay for my SQA Diploma, will I have to pay for it in full at the start or can I buy each unit separately? Is there a way to spread the cost for example by monthly/quarterly instalments?

You can pay for each unit separately. We also have a 12-month payment plan available if you purchase the full Diploma. Please call our Sales and Enquiry Team on 0345 2032103 if you’d like to discuss this option.

What happens if my employer wants to pay for my Diploma? 

Your employer can pay for all of your units up front or one-by-one. Please call our Sales and Enquiry Team on 0345 2032103 if you’d like to discuss this option. Please note that the ‘payment plan’ option is available only to personal payers

There are no entry requirements for studying at Level 4. It’s not necessary for new students to have any prior experience, knowledge, skills or understanding of conveyancing procedure and practice at this level; though Level 2 English and Maths qualifications may be helpful. You’re not required to be employed in a legal services job to study any of our diplomas.

You must have completed Level 4 or have the appropriate exemptions, to study at Level 6. 

 

You may be entitled to exemptions for previous study. Please check the CLC website, via the link below, to access the most up to date information on exemptions. 

https://www.clc-uk.org/trainees/am-i-eligible-for-exemptions 

You’ll need to provide us with proof of your exemptions which we’ll process with SQA. It’s essential you provide both your certificate and a qualification transcript as evidence, before we can allow any exemptions. We’re unable to accept one without the other. Please note there are no exemptions allowed for Understanding Accounting Procedures for Probate Transactions/Conveyancing Transactions at Level 4 or Level 6.

 

If you buy the full Diploma you have two years to complete this.  Any second attempts at assessments or exams must be completed within the 24 month access period. 

You’ll find all the study materials, for our online programme, on the VLE. Once your enrolment has been processed, you’ll receive a printed copy of the course workbook and an email giving you access (with a unique user name and password) to the MOL Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
