Study materials and support

We supply IPED course materials free of charge. Our study materials, which offer quick learning start, are comprehensive, use simple English, and are easy to read and understand. The contents are so sufficient and self-explanatory; that in majority of cases readers do not require further support; although support is always available when you need it.


Examination and certification

All assessments are unseen written examinations which are conducted at an approved venue or exam centre under clocked supervised conditions. If you are outside the UK, arrangements will be made for your exams to be conducted on our behalf by a reputable organization.

On successful completion of your exams, you will be certified by IPED – United Kingdom. Certification takes place in the United Kingdom, irrespective of where the exams is taken. Your certificate may be validated by a national or regional authority depending on existing arrangements.

Examinations are conducted in March, June, September and December. You can find exam timetables on our website. Deadlines for sending exam entries can be found on the bottom of each timetable. You can try your hands on sample questions by downloading them from our website. If you require mock exams prior to your main exams, you can contact administration to arrange this with a support staff at the prevailing rate.

>Releasing results: We aim to release exam results within eight (8) to twelve (12) weeks after examinations. In most cases we are able to release results well before this deadline. Certificates and transcripts will be sent out to you upon release of results. They may be posted directly or sent through an authorized IPED representative.

>Result disputes: From experience, we usually do not have to deal with result disputes. We always ensure that procedures are properly applied in producing candidate result(s) of assessment(s). However in the unlikely event, where you need to dispute a result, we have a procedure in place to handle it.


Progression opportunities

IPED qualifications undoubtedly give holders the skills to succeed. Many of our graduates use their awards to work in industries such as those relating to Oil and Gas, Banking and Finance, Business, HR, Marketing and Project Management. In the Oil and Gas industry for example, some have secured attractive employments with petrochemical companies based in Scotland, the United Arab Emirates, China, Nigeria, to name a few.

In cases where our students have been able to meet the minimum requirements set by respective universities (such as English language requirements), they have used their awards to further their studies with universities such as Heriot Watt University UK, Coventry University UK, University of Regina Canada.  These success stories however do not constitute any formal arrangement between the respective universities and IPED. Admission decisions rest solely with the university and the students’ underlining circumstances.

In Ghana, for example, entry into many universities including public ones is facilitated by the National Accreditation Board, Ministry of Education, GOVGH. Upon successful completion of your IPED course (in respect of Ghana based students), take your IPED certificate to the NAB office in Accra for validation. You will be provided with an evaluation sheet that can be used for your university application successfully. The NAB GOVGH also validates IPED certificates presented to them to enable successful IPED students achieve their objectives with respect to undertaking national service and/or taking up employment.
