What's Involved

The BTEC National Diploma in Business is a 1 year course for anyone interested in a career in business or wishing to progress to a higher level of study at University.

Students will initially work towards 18 units of study for Diploma Level. Three of the four compulsory units will be studied during the first term, with tutors assessing students competency at the end of the first term.

The students may visit outside organisations to see Business concepts and skills in place. Day trips in this country and abroad also take place including a residential. All trips are compulsory and require a fee.

Entry Requirements

You will require six GCSEs at Grades 9-4 (A-C) including English and Maths and a reference from your previous school or college along with any other certificates you may hold.

Appplicants who have previously completed Business Level 2 Diploma are able to progress onto this Level 3 Diploma following a positive interview with course staff.

Where will it take me?

Universities recognise the value of the qualification, the business skills and independent nature it encourages. You may use the qualification to gain entry to University to study Business related Degrees and HND qualifications as the qualification attracts UCAS points for University Entrance.
