About Our Courses

UK GCA’s Mission

Our mission is to explain the business world and its intersection with technology. Clearly, objectively and simply. To deliver accessible, world-class, socially-responsible, UK education programmes, across our fantastic galaxy of learners. 

UK GCA’s Vision 

We aim to transform lives and circumstances for the better by providing accessible, affordable and accredited business and tech education. We are a professional UK-based business education institution. Training is often temporary, yet reflective, rigorous, formal education changes all of our lives for the better. 

We are Quality Assured – Ofqual Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) 

As a prestigious academy committed to quality assurance across all our domains of course delivery, our Global Cyber Academy are proud to say that we only ever run formally accredited academic vocational courses.

In fact, all of the academic courses offered by Global Cyber Academy carry an Ofqual approved award and universities will generally accept the RQF credits awarded to students. Students should make it clear to the University that the qualification is OFQUAL RQF validated, provide the RQF number in the course specification, and provide the University with the level/credit value expressed on the transcript. 

We are recognised by UK Universities

On passing our courses, Global Cyber Academy and our Awarding Bodies will provide students with the requisite UK Ofqual documentation and formal transcript. 

In preparation for planning their studies and developing a longer-term study plan, students should take time to visit the Ofqual website  to assure themselves that the qualification they wish to study and graduate from, is listed. They should also work out a ‘study route’ that will act as a plan for the next three or four years. Academic study is a huge investment of time and money and you will need to stick to your goals and keep your ‘eyes on the prize’! 

After passing a Level 3 Diploma, you may wish to use the certificate to access the first year of a University Degree.

Or you may wish to study Diploma Levels 4 and 5 with us, then apply to join the final year (top-up) of a UK University Degree programme. For our awarding bodies’ progression route options please speak with your agent or visit:

UK Universities 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, Kuala Lumpur, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, just to mention a tiny few instances. If unsure, students should check locally for these arrangements or ask advice – from their agent or the UK Global Cyber Academy – before joining a course. International students looking to complete a top-up in the UK may also visit the UK National Recognition Centre (NARIC) website to view qualification equivalencies:

University Progression? Remember: It’s down to you!

But remember – each University will consider a student application on its individual merits and set the application against their own specific entry requirements. Therefore, try hard to add value to your academic studies by becoming involved with extra-curriculum activities, such as hosting academy society webinars, events, or becoming a Cyber Academy Ambassador. 

Unfortunately, although most succeed, we are legally unable to guarantee that you will automatically progress onto the University course that you wish, or the location that you desire, after graduating from our Academy. 

Although after passing our Diploma, you may well have the certificate, transcript, credits and the track record, the final part of your application into a British University top-up (or other high-quality institution) is down to you! Although, we will do everything within our power to prepare you for the application, selection and your subsequent career as a high-achieving global citizen!
