Access to Higher Education Diploma: Business and Management

The Access to Business and Management Diploma is a full Level 3 qualification designed to prepare adults without traditional qualifications for entry into Higher Education (HE). Access to Higher Education Diplomas provide the knowledge and skills needed to progress to study at University level.

The programme consists of three business subject blocks (equivalent to three A Levels) as well as a Study Skills module, which supports your academic essay writing skills as well as guiding you through the UCAS application process.

Feedback from past students and university staff has evidenced that these study skills, along with the comprehensive core subject content has enabled Access students to be well placed in a University Setting.

This is an exciting opportunity to discover the world of both national and international business. You will consider and discuss aspects of business organisations and structure and explore specific issues such as human resource management, marketing and finance. You will also have the opportunity to engage with local businesses and listen to external speakers and visitors who will give an invaluable insight in to the workings of business organisations.

What will I learn?

"I left the army in August 2016 after serving as a front-line medic for 7 years. I decided to visit the college to explore my options as I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a vet. I chose to study an Access to Higher Education course with pathways in Chemistry, Biology and Applied Science- alongside my GCSE maths and English. The staff at the college have been very supportive. Their industry experience and depth of knowledge has been invaluable to my journey. I recently had an interview at the University of Bristol and was offered a place at the School of Veterinary Sciences – one of only 6 in the UK. The college provided me with a stepping stone to my desired career."Rebecca Williams
