Access to Business Management at Newham College of Further Education

Entry requirements

If you have an up to date level 2 course (obtained within the last three years) and evidence of level 2 literacy and numeracy then you will be able to take part on the course.

If you do not meet the criteria then the college has a range of alternative programmes open to you.
