The Business Higher National Diploma (HND) has a strong work-related emphasis. With that in mind, the course provides you with a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in the sector. The course is designed for those who prefer more practical and vocational perspective than a traditional degree course, and offers a nationally and internationally recognised award after two years of study. It appeals to employees working in a Management role where they can relate their experience for completing assignments. A large proportion of our students use the qualification as a springboard onto a final year top up degree here or at other universities.
