The beginning of an exciting journey
We firmly believe in student progression, so our qualifications have been specifically designed to lead to employment or to further or higher education. Regular collaboration with sector skills councils, governments, professional bodies, universities and employers ensures that our qualifications are relevant and internationally recognised.
Millions of international students have benefited from the prospects that Edexcel’s qualifications offer.
So what does recognition mean?
Recognition refers to how qualifications are rated and accepted by universities and employers.
Edexcel and BTEC qualifications are recognised all over the world as equivalents of national qualifications at various levels. And you can now download UK NARIC’s report mapping BTEC HNC and HND, against qualifications from Europe, USA, Canada and Australia – giving you the recognised equivalents of our qualifications in these markets, to help entry into employment or university in those markets:

What does progression mean?
Progression refers to what students can do with their qualification once they’ve achieved it. This can mean pursuing further or higher education or entering the workforce.
Edexcel’s recognition and progression pathways are designed to give our students choice, flexibility and international mobility.
