This Access to Business Studies programme is designed for adults interested in undertaking a career in the Business and Marketing or Law fields.

Successful completion of the course could also lead to progress onto the College's University Level courses. You could study the HNC/HND in Business on your doorstep.

What will I do?

The Access to Business Studies programme is gained by achieving 33 Level 3 credits in Business and Management and 18 credits in Law.

Alongside these three main subjects, you must also gain nine Level 3 credits in Study Skills.

Whilst it is an advantage that you have a full Level 2 qualification prior to entry on the Access to Business Studies programme, the only requirement is that you hold at least a minimum of one GCSE grade 4 (Old GCSE grade C), in either English or Maths (equivalent qualifications may also be accepted e.g. Functional Skills Level 2).

The Access to Business Studies programme will take you one year (34 weeks) to complete. You will study at College 14 hours a week; hours are designed to fit around childcare/school hours.

For those aged 19-23 on the first day of the course, if this is your first Level 3 course your fees may be free, please enquire with the Registry Department for further information on 01205 365701

The Access to Business Studies programme will cost £3022
If you have already gained a Level 3 qualification you may still be able to apply for an Advanced Learning Loan.

Aged 19+?
If you are aged 19 years or over on the 1st day of your course, you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan to help with your College fees. If you progress to employment you won't have to pay anything back until you’re earning £25,000 per year. Your household income isn't taken into account and there's no credit check. Your eligibility depends on your course, nationality, and age. To find out more contact the College Information Line on 01205 313218

International and EU Students, please contact the International Office on +44 (0)1205 313212 or for details on fees.

Fees may vary depending on personal circumstances, please enquire for further information.

Please note that all fees are subject to change.

For the full diploma to be awarded you will need to compile a portfolio of assignments, which are externally moderated by Aim.

Students learn by a variety of processes including theory and practice, portfolio assignments, individual and group work.

Successful completion of the Access to Business Studies programme may allow you direct entry to university study on courses relating to Business and Law such as, Marketing, Hospitality Management, International Relations or Law (LLB)
