Business touches on pretty much every aspect of modern human society. Over 30 million people are employed in Britain and they all work in businesses of some type; therefore it could be argued the subject is the most relevant qualification of all.

Do I need to have done the subject at GCSE?
No prior knowledge of Business Studies at GCSE level is required. However, good Mathematics and English grades will help.
Students in the Sixth Form, who are in need of some financial support, may be eligible for the Schools 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. This is the fund which replaces EMA and has been allocated directly, by the Government, to individual Schools to administer. This funding, however, does not replicate EMA and the amount of money available for distribution is much less. Therefore, we are committed to distributing Bursaries to those students with the greatest need. Eligibility for Guaranteed Bursary Students most in need will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1,200 a year.
This group includes: People in care, care leavers, people claiming income support, disabled young people who receive Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance.
Top 10 universities for Business in the country: Cambridge, Imperial College London, Bath, London School of Economics, Warwick, Loughborough, St Andrews, Lancaster, City and Nottingham.
