Successful students will be awarded a PassMerit or Distinction in each unit. 

As an estimate of what quality of work you’re looking for, take a look at the grading guidelines below:

Distinction: Clearly demonstrates a sophisticated understanding of the topic, with a high degree of competence and has excellent usage of relevant literature, theory and methodology. For ease of understanding you need to get at least 80% marks in the assessment.

Merit: Has a critical understanding of the topic, a significant degree of competence and has appropriate usage of the relevant materials. For ease of understanding you need to get at least 65% marks in the assessment.

Pass: Evidence of some critical understanding of the topic, can use structured argument, and has a degree of competence when using relevant materials. For ease of understanding you need to get at least 50% marks in the assessment.

Yes you can. If you are unable to get at least 50% marks or you could not attend any of the final exams, you can resit for the exam. Please note, 1st retake is free. For further retake it will cost GBP20 per exam and that will also delay the certification as well.

Once you have successfully completed all six PGDMEAL units, it will take at least six weeks (after completing External Quality Assurance) to receive the certificate. You will receive your certificate physically at your home address by our third-party courier service provider.

Course fee£600 (Installments available)
