A minimum of 120 credits must be achieved to be awarded the BTEC Level 4 HNC, which requires approximately 480 guided learning hours (GLH).
You will be assessed through written assignments and coursework.
We welcome mature students (over 21) who do not have formal qualifications but have relevant experience. You will be interviewed and may have to undertake assessment tests to determine whether you are able to cope with the workload.
If you do have formal qualifications, we consider:
A BTEC National Diploma
At least one GCE A level
Access to Higher Education certificate
English Language Proficiency
All applicants whose first language is not English must obtain an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 5.5, with a minimum of 5.0 being awarded on individual sections (or equivalent).
On completion of the BTEC Level 4 HNC in Business, students can then progress directly onto the second year of the Level 5 HND in Business course at FSB.
