Entry requirements

Applicants should preferably have grade C or above in English and maths GCSEs or equivalents. English and Maths GCSEs are available to study at Shrewsbury College. Your options will be discussed at interview.

Who is it for?

This course is designed to prepare adults for degree level study. It offers a rigorous A level equivalent in a supportive environment. Access programmes are flexible and attractive to adult students who would like to improve their educational qualifications and are popular with students who may have been out of formal education for some time and who appreciate a more adult-friendly learning atmosphere.

Most students who study this diploma aim for careers in Management, Marketing, Finance, Economics or Law but the range of destinations is not limited to these.

What does the course involve?

The course includes a range of modules from the following subjects:

  • Business Management
  • Business Organisations
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Law
  • ICT
  • Skills for Learning.
  • How is the course assessed?

    The assessment techniques used are varied throughout the programme but most is by continuous assessment, as adult students generally prefer this. There are external examinations for English and maths if required.

    Additional costs

    An Advanced Learning Loan may be available to meet the costs advertised. You may need to obtain some books to assist your studies.
