EIT’s Advanced Diploma comparable to HND

Welcome to the Engineering Institute of Technology


Fast track your career and improve your technical know-how.

Graduates of EIT’s Advanced Diploma programs in the UK can be confident that their international qualification has been officially evaluated as comparable to the BTEC / SQA Higher National Diploma (HND) standard / Foundation Degree Standard. A BTEC Higher National Diploma is at the same level of the National Qualifications Framework as NVQ / SVQ Level 4.

Nationally recognised qualifications that have been achieved at EIT can be compared by UK NARIC to the UK framework. UK NARIC is the UK’s national agency responsible for the recognition of qualifications from overseas and provides services for individuals and organisations to compare international qualifications against UK qualification framework levels. UK NARIC is managed by ECCTIS Ltd (see http://www.ecctis.co.uk/naric/Default.aspx) which administers the service for the UK Government.

EIT does automatically take care of official recognition on behalf of UK-based students as described above.

What our past Students have to say

Our students work in the fast-moving engineering and technology fields where time is precious.

They choose EIT's state-of-the-art online delivery because it provides many of the benefits of live classroom based study without the inconvenience of travel.


“I have enjoyed this course and the broad spectrum of engineering knowledge that is included within the course syllabus which is not readily available on other courses which are more focused on a particular area.”
NSH, United Kingdom

“I think overall the course is good and a real option for working people to further their education. The flexibility of the course allows me to study without excessively affecting my home life and work commitments.”
Energy, Australia

“International recognition with body endorsing certification. Easy to attend lessons after work hours. Easy way of course payment.”
Kinyara Sugar, Uganda

“I feel the education the EIT provides is superior to all distance education and at times is far superior to many of the in class coursework I have completed at local Universities. I look forward to attending many more courses."
