The UK Government
The UK Government grants powers to an independent regularity body and requires them to maintain standards. An independent Select Committee is responsible for maintaining these standards.

Ofqual – the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation
Ofqual uses its powers to monitor examination boards which successfully move through a very rigorous approval process and undergo continuous quality assurance activities.

Awarding Organisations – the Ofqual recognised UK examination boards
Ofqual recognised exam boards are able to deliver, develop and award UK qualifications.

Education & Training Centres – the overseas centres
Through gaining TRC Colleges Satellite Centre status, overseas institutions can demonstrate their institution’s ability to offer their own qualifications and certification which can then be approved and recognised for Dual UK Awards Certification by specific UK examination boards.


How It Works

TRC Colleges has a unique agreement with a range of UK examination boards at very concessionary rates.

  • TRC acts like a “Go Compare Service” and takes and matches your qualification, subject(s) and level to the most appropriate Ofqual registered examination board qualification. You will appreciate that there are thousands of unit combinations and awards for us to match on the UK National Qualifications Framework
  • Once TRC has matched your qualification and course to the most appropriate UK examination board. The UK Examination Board will then scrutinise your own award and assessment processes and if it is satisfied with these, then on this basis it will recognise your standards of assessment and issue their own UK award certification for your
  • Your institution will be recognised through TRC Colleges as a registered TRC Colleges Satellite Centre by the UK examination board for this operation and qualifications approval.


Which UK Exam Boards?

As we have already pointed out there is a wide range of overseas institutional subjects and levels of awards to match and all UK exam boards have different award combinations so it is difficult to say which one unless we go through the actual process with your own awards.
