University Progression/ Route

On completion of course at Williams Global Learning , students have the following options available to them:

Study FULL TIME or PART TIME on campus in the UK for top-up courses or direct entry to university

Students should always check the requirements with their preferred University or local University if they intend to apply. Many Universities operate part time/evening provision, and students should check possibilities with their preferred Universities first.

Most Universities will accept Ofqual credits for advanced entry. Therefore students can choose their own University to study full time for a shorter period. Many Universities will also offer part time study programmes either as day release or evening study. Some may also offer weekend workshops. Please check this with your preferred University.

Study with UK Universities based OVERSEAS

Some UK Universities operate overseas Campuses and may accept local students on their programmes with advanced entry. For example, UK Universities have campuses in Dubai, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, amongst many others. Students should check locally for these arrangements. There are several UK Campuses in UAE Other examples are Hong Kong, Cyprus, Mauritius and several parts of South Asia. International students looking to complete in the UK may also visit the NARIC website to view equivalencies


Students may want to study at Institutions nearer their home country or qualifications outside of UK. For example many Australian and Canadian Universities offer distance learning and will recognise equivalent UK qualifications on a case by case basis.

USA Universities will generally accept UK advanced entry students and equivalence but there is a huge difference between regions and Universities with general policy.

Study for an AMBA, MBA

The Association of MBAs(AMBA) is a membership organisation that provides accreditation and upholds the highest international standards of MBA programmes. Many UK Universities are Members and offer distance learning study. Although credits cannot be given, admission can be gained via the Williams Global Learning Level 6 or 7 plus the requisite additional entry requirements of your chosen University. Students should check the regulations of their chosen University first.
