Who Accredits And Awards Our Degrees?
NSPC is a partner institution of Middlesex University. Middlesex awards all our degrees, which include post-graduate certificates, post-graduate diplomas, an MSc, an MA, two MProfs, and two professional doctorates. Doctoral students are joint students with Middlesex University and enjoy the same facilities as other Middlesex students. Some of our other degrees are validated by Middlesex, which means that students are studying solely with NSPC but are awarded their degree by Middlesex University.
