Statement of Comparability

Statement of Comparability – the application process

Shows how your qualifications compare to UK qualifications and the UK education system

How long does it take?

The turnround time is 10-15 working days. 24- and 48-hour Fast Track options are available.

The 24-hour or 48-hour Fast Track time begins when we have received all required documents and payment. Postage/delivery time is extra, on top of the 24-hour/48-hour service time.

In a few cases, such as those requiring additional research into the qualifications, the process may take longer – this is uncommon, but if it applies to your case, we will tell you. In these cases, you can withdraw your application if you prefer.

Documents required

We need:

  • A colour copy or scan of your final certificate
  • A colour copy or scan of your academic transcripts (documents from affiliate colleges accepted)
  • A colour copy or scan of translations of your documents, if not issued in English originally. Alternatively you can pay for our Translation Waiver Service

The Statement of Comparability costs £49.50 + VAT* (£59.40). This price covers all the qualifications you submit.

You can view the prices for 24- and 48-hour Fast Track upgrades.

*VAT is payable within the EU. If you are applying from an address outside of the EU, you are not required to pay VAT.
