Non-Official Diploma


Explanation:
In this case, not issued by a degree-granting institution. However, non-official covers many more things, from "títulos propios" in a university to "Masters" that are not recognized by State Education Departments or Ministries.

2 hrs
unofficial certificate


Explanation:
this gave more hits than unofficial/non-official diploma and can be given when courses are completed. I think a degree is not the right word in this context, especially after a 10-year English course! And I think that unofficial is necessary whichever word you choose, as all the suggestions so far can also be official.
