Access to HE: Business at South Thames College

Course description

You'll study specialist business units including marketing, planning, strategy, operations, business environment, human resources, finance and IT to prepare you for university study. Tutorial sessions will help you with your UCAS applications and there is also a focus on the development of study skills to give you everything you'll need to succeed at degree level. You'll cover many different approaches to learning including research, observation, written assessment, peer assessment and individual and small group presentations.

Entry requirements

You'll need to show knowledge of the subject and a commitment to research and study at this level. Many universities ask for GCSE English and maths A*-C for entry onto their courses so ideally you'll have these already. If you don't already have A*-C in GCSE English and maths, you can take an English and/or maths assessment with us and still get onto our Access course depending on your results. You should always check the entry requirements for the courses and universities you are interested in progressing onto.


Assessments take place throughout the course with essays, assignments, presentations, tests and final exams. You must pass each unit and gain a total of 60 credits, of which 45 must be at Level 3, to achieve the qualification.
