What is the DETC System?

The DETC system is based on units which have credit value and levels (from Entry Level to Level 8). One credit roughly equals 10 learning hours which allows the learners to evaluate how much time they will need to gain the desired qualification. According to the DETC system, the learners can gain three types of qualifications:


·       awards

·       certificates

·       diplomas


UKAP has taken the opportunity to thoroughly revise its suite of qualifications in order to provide the most relevant and focused learning experience for students. UKAP's qualifications are examined at Level 4 Level 5 Certificate Level 6 Level 7 Postgraduate Diploma.

Credits are assigned to regulated qualifications and recognized by universities in many countries. The credits you achieve through some qualifications may count towards others if you have covered similar learning outcomes at a comparable level.

As a general rule, ten hours of learning (including both taught and self-study) equates to approximately one credit.
