ATHE Level 3 Diploma in Business and Management
For students who are looking for an alternative pathway to A-levels and are interested in the areas of Business and Management, we can offer our one-year Business Diploma. This government-recognised qualification is accepted by many of the UK’s best universities.
Students must be at least 17 years old by 1st September immediately preceding the course start date. Students must attain a minimum English Language level of IELTS 5.0 prior to starting the course. Our course-specific entry tests must be taken by applicants.
Formally equivalent to two A-levels, the course comprises six course modules covering the most important aspects of business and management. The course is internally assessed using a combination of written tests, presentations and a course portfolio (there are no formal, external exams). The final grade will be awarded as a Pass, Merit or Distinction.
This Diploma is underpinned with serious academic content and assessment, thereby giving leading universities confidence in its integrity and in their decisions to make conditional offers to our Diploma students. This is an excellent course for those who wish to go on to study Business or a Business-related undergraduate degree.
This Diploma is officially recognised by the UK Government – Ofqual registered qualification: No 601/8701/3; European Qualification Framework Level 4.
In order to gain entry to the best university possible, this course should be combined with one or more A-levels (for example, an A-level in your own language). Most students will also study IELTS and undertake the highly-regarded EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), which will help their university application considerably.
