Entry requirements

Whilst no formal qualifications are required, it is preferred that you have at least one GCSE in English or Maths with the willingness to complete the GCSE in the missing subject. Universities are increasingly asking for GCSEs as part of their entry criteria and we will offer you the chance to take a class alongside your Access programme. Applicants will take an assessment in reading and writing English and must demonstrate that they are proficient enough in both to benefit from this level 3 course. All applicants will be interviewed to ensure that the course is the right choice based on previous educational and work experience.


You will be assessed through a mix of written assignments, practical exercises and in class tests. There are no formal examinations on this programme.

Future opportunities

Students who successfully complete the course will be awarded an Access to HE Diploma (Business Studies) accredited by the Open College Network London Region. This qualification will enable you to apply to study for Business degrees at British universities.

How to apply

If you want to apply for this course, you will need to contact City of Westminster College directly.
