Accredited Short Courses
We are offering the full award as individual short courses to allow you flexibility around your studies, so that you can complete any particular short course in any order allowing you complete freedom to choose and complete courses as and when you want to.
Qualification, Credit points and level
Dundee & Angus College have been advised by the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) that “…the devolved authority development PDA Service Design was noted by SQA Business Case Group …. and the development should proceed.” The short courses detailed above have been submitted to SQA for Verification and Approval. The PDA is the overarching award for the short courses but until the courses have the final seal of approval we cannot use this title. Dundee & Angus College will work with SQA to ensure that the short courses are accredited and when that happens students studying the Award in Service Design will automatically be transferred (this is an internal admin process) to the Group Award for accreditation and we will notify you about this.
Each short course has been submitted but has still to be verified and approved as a Higher National Unit credit at SCQF level 7: (8 SCQF credit points at SCQF level 7)
