Prepare for today's highly competitive business environment and learn to devise effective solutions to real management situations studying at one of our local teaching centres. This CertHE is qualification in its own right and provides an entry route to degree-level study.

Key features

  1. An entry route to degree-level study

    Gain the essential skills you need to succeed with this one-year programme designed as an entry point into the BSc for students who do not have the qualifications usually required. Equivalent to the first year of the BSc, it lays the foundations for advanced and independent study.

  3. Outstanding study support

  4. Unlock world-class resources

    Benefit from study materials designed for distance learning via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), including notes, videos, podcasts, book chapters, past examination papers, and a range of learning activities. You can interact with your tutors and fellow students or access academic electronic resources through the Online Library.

  5. Join our global alumni community

    Follow in the footsteps of a distinguished list of University of London alumni from Nobel prize-winners to leaders in law, finance, humanities and other fields in more than 190 countries. Enjoy wide-ranging benefits including events, free online courses and more.
