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 a full Diploma. Please call our Qualification Advisors on 0345 2032103 if you’d like to discuss your options.
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 Qualification Advisors on 0345 2032103 if you’d like to discuss your options. Please note that the ‘payment plan’ option is available only to personal payers
What qualifications or experience do I need to start studying?
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.
I’ve completed previous study which I feel is relevant. What do I do?
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.
You’ll need to provide us with proof of your exemptions so we can process these with SQA. It’s essential you provide both your certificate and a qualification transcript as evidence, before we can start the process. We’re unable to accept one without the other. Please note there are no exemptions allowed for Understanding Accounting Procedures for Conveyancing Transactions at Level 4 or Level 6.
How long do I have to complete the entire Diploma (either at level 4 or at 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.
What materials will I receive when I enrol on the SQA Diploma course with MOL?
Once we’ve processed your enrolment, you’ll receive a printed copy of the SQA course manual and an email giving you access to the MOL Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE is where you’ll find all your study materials and details of how to register for webinars, your online exams and access the content recordings.
How will I be assessed?
Level 4 – The English Legal System, Land Law, Law of Contract, and Standard Conveyancing Transactions units are all assessed by written assignment, completed in your own time within a three or four week period, and not under examination conditions. Assignments are ‘open book’ and based on scenarios or case studies with a linked series of questions. This means you can reference any material you have available to help inform and support your answers.
Level 4 - Understanding Accounting Procedures for Conveyancing Transactions is assessed by online examination under examination conditions.
Level 6 – All Level 6 units are assessed by online examination under examination conditions.
How do I apply for my CLC Licence?
To find out how to obtain your CLC licence you should contact CLC http://www.conveyancer.org.uk/
Is this qualification only recognised in England and Wales? Can a CLC licensed conveyancer apply for a job in countries outside of England and Wales?
The qualification is built on legislation that applies to England and Wales. Other countries will have their own laws and conveyancing practices so this qualification might not be relevant/applicable/recognised. You would need to investigate which conveyancing qualifications are recognised in the country you want to practice (if its outside of England and Wales).
