The qualification landscape for progress or top-up  admissions is currently undergoing significant change because of level qualification based on the Regulated Qualfition Framework (RQF).

As one of the UK National Qualfitcation, level qualification will be recognized not only in the level qualification systems but also with the University systems. Mặc dù có sự công nhận lẫn nhau, nhưng quyền quyết định tiếp nhận thuộc về từng trường Đại học, do đó, LAS khuyến khích học viên tìm hiểu thông tin trước.
