Dear all,

I would like to know if anyone on this forum has obtained a degree from Arden University of UK and got it evaluated by WES or IQAS.

As I am planning to complete my bachelors from there, I would like to know before hand if it can be converted to Canadian education.

Also note, that Arden is a recognized university in U.K. & its name is on the government accredited universities as well.

Your input will be highly appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance.

You can contact IQAS to find out if they will do it, chances are most likely they won't.
Hey Andy,

Previously I got my higher national diploma certified by WES, it was from Western International College in UK.

I've attached a copy for reference.

This college is not there in WES list, somehow I believe they have not updated their list in a long time.

Fair enough. You should probably contact them directly then, would be fastest way to get your answer.
That's why I was looking for someone who might've studied there already.

Although I do believe if it is certified by the government of U.K. it shouldn't be an issue, but still need a confirmation.

Thanks for your input though. :)
