What are the benefits of the SCQF recognition?

The SCQF recognition ensures that IQN qualifications will be recognised not just in Scotland but across the rest of UK and Europe. The SCQF recognition helps students to relate IQN qualifications to nationally recognised qualifications. The SCQF recognition adds value to IQN qualifications and does give IQN an edge over other global qualification providers. The SCQF recognises the learning achieved by IQN students, thus improving students’ morale and self-esteem.
