Course Overview

Our Access to Business Studies Diploma is an established and recognised route into university which has been running at Kensington and Chelsea College for twenty years. In the past students have gone on to study degrees in Management, Accounting and Finance, Administration, International Business, Music and Sport Management and other related areas.,

Students have successfully progressed on to high-ranking Universities throughout the United Kingdom, such as King’s College London, The London School of Economics, Brunel, Exeter, Queen Mary, Manchester and City. We also have a close relationship with the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and Birkbeck.

You will study modules in Study Skills, Accounts, European Studies and Business Organisation. ICT is integrated into all areas of the diploma. You will receive extensive support throughout the course, including guidance around all aspects of your University application.

To study for the Diploma, you will need very good English and Maths. If you do not have GCSE A-C (or equivalent) in maths, you will have to take this alongside the course. This course involves a lot of private study time alongside the three days in college so you must be committed and serious about studying at advanced level.

Students interested in the Diploma will be invited for an assessment in written English and maths as well attend an interview to discuss their suitability. You will also be expected to supply a reference. Students must be 19 or over.
