Hey guys, I have a question I have a Diploma di Terza Media, and then I did another 2 years of "scuola superiore ragionera", then I left because of personal reasons. But I have the grade of those 2 years too. I wanted to know what is the equivalent to the UK of my Diploma ? Do I have to do the GCSEs ?

How old are you? Already in the UK education system and for how long?
It will be up to the college to decide, but they may not recognise your qualifications and instead give you a test.
Tell them which qualifications you have and which age they are sat at, so they can gauge what you might be equivalent to.

What course is it in Finance and Marketing?

For the UK you have level 2, which is GCSE and sat by 16 year olds in year 11.
They then move onto level 3, which can be A levels or move to college. It will equate to GCE/ IB/ BTEC.
You would then move onto level 4-6, which is uni undergrad level.

Seems like you are looking for something at level 3? In the event you dont have level 2 and they are unwilling to accept your qualifications, then you could ask them about a pre access course, which is about 2-5 GCSEs in a year.

Then you could get access top higher levels.


Unis are more used to dealing with international students.
For university then they would be looking at Diploma di Esame di Stato.

What we dont know is your age as that gives us an idea where you are and what education options are open and whether you would have to pay.

If you werent interested in going to uni or doing GCSE then you could try some specialist providers like the Institute of marketing or someone like the LIBF, which specialise in some financial services qualifications.
