For entry onto the NCC Education L5DC qualification students must have at least one of the following:
- NCC Education Level 4 Diploma in Computing (L4DC).
- A local or international qualification which is deemed to be of a similar level to the NCC Education L4DC qualification. This must be agreed with NCC Education in advance.
If a potential student whose first language is not English, they will need to obtain a valid score of 5.5 or above in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination or equivalent. Alternatively, take the free NCC Education Higher English Placement Test, which is administered by our Accredited Partner Centres.
Direct Entry at Other Points
The majority of students are expected to join the NCC Education Information Technology Journey at Level 4 or earlier. However, applications will be accepted for entry at any point and will be accepted, by means of documented evidence, using the following criteria:
- The applicant’s general educational background is appropriate for the level of entry.
- The applicant’s knowledge of computing is both equivalent to, and appropriate for, the level of entry.
