Access to Higher Education Diploma (Business and Management)

Do you want to build a career in the business world, but don’t have the qualifications to get to university? The Access to HE Diploma (Business and Management) will give you the knowledge you need to study at degree-level. Working as a manager in a fast-paced business environment can be challenging. You must have the skills to motivate your team, while meeting your own targets.

This qualification takes an in-depth look at key elements of running a company, including common staff structures and different styles of management. Discover how business operates, and examine market structures, management and economics. The course provides the tools to understand management roles at every level. You’ll also explore topics including HR, marketing and business planning.

The Access to HE Diploma (Business and Management), will prepare you to make a step up academically. Units on researching independently, following study schedules and writing essays will increase your confidence before you start your degree course.

How does my Access to HE Diploma work?

You’ll complete your Access to HE Diploma through distance learning, which means you can work on your assignments in your own time, from home. Benefit from a study package that includes interactive course materials and the dedicated support of our tutors. Get all the advice and encouragement you need via phone, email, or the PEARL messaging system. You can also connect with our student community online, or share your progress on our discussion forum.

How long it takes you to complete your Access course really depends upon how much time you are able to dedicate to your studies. The programmes are designed to give you the flexibility to study at times that are suitable for you, and to fit your studies around your other commitments. The maximum time you have to complete your Diploma is outlined in your Individual Learning Plan (ILP). The minimum time you can complete your Access course is six months.

How will my Access to HE Diploma be assessed?

The Access to HE Diploma (Business and Management) is assessed through assignments, which you’ll submit at the end of each unit. A tutor will mark your work and provide detailed feedback. The Access to HE Diploma is regulated by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). It is a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification. If you want to attain the Access to HE Diploma you must achieve 60 credits in total. Of these, 45 will be from graded units which are concerned with academic subject content. The other 15 credits come from ungraded units. These units have been included to help you to develop your study skills.

What happens after the Access to HE Diploma?

After finishing your Access to HE Diploma, you can go on to study a range of degree subjects. Options include everything from business law and economics, to international business or HR.

A business degree is ideal for anyone interested in a fast-paced or high-flying career. You’ll develop a variety of transferable skills that employers look for, including the ability to create detailed reports, think critically and communicate with colleagues. You could find success in the corporate world, marketing, finance, politics, or even the charity sector.

Leaders are needed in every industry, with management skills always in demand. You may choose to return to university to achieve a master’s degree, before specialising in one area of business.
