Level 3 Diploma in Business Studies

Course details

The ATHE Level 3 Diploma in Business is run by our partner London School of Business. It is a 60 credit Ofqual regulated qualification and is the equivalent level to an A-Level or Access to HE qualification. It has been designed with support from higher education providers and is intended for learners who wish to progress to a business or management degree but may not have the traditional entry qualifications usually required.

The qualification provides learners with an introduction to the business environment and to marketing, as well as key academic, research and communication skills that are required for successful progression to higher education. The introductory skills, knowledge and understanding that you will gain would be useful in many job roles within the business setting, including those offered through school/college-leaver traineeships or fast-track programmes.

Learners who complete this qualification can progress to study a variety of Bachelor’s Degrees at a university such as our partner universities including The University of Roehampton, The University of Sunderland, Ulster University and Anglia Ruskin University.
