Business - Access Course at Harrow College

Course description

The course provides an introduction to a range of business-related topics. It is designed to prepare students for progression to a university level course in Business.

Course content

You will study a range of topics in four broad areas: Study Skills, Financial decision-making, Marketing & Business Planning, and Managing People & Business.

You will have around 15 hours per week of classroom study, which will include lectures, presentations, group work and discussion.

Entry requirements

Universities have made GCSE English and Maths a prerequisite for progression from an Access programme into higher education. Students are therefore required to have at least a GCSE or an overseas equivalent at grade C or better in English or Maths prior to commencing their chosen Access Course (evidence will be required). Students who do not have both English or Maths at GCSE grade C or overseas equivalent will take this alongside their Access course, therefore must undertake an assessment to determine whether they are at the correct level to study for this in year. Students who do not have GCSE English and Maths or equivalent at Grade C will not be allowed to study an Access course and will be signposted to our evening GCSE courses, which are again subject to an initial assessment to assess suitability.
