UCAS Tariff 120 points As this course is primarily designed as a top-up programme, you must have an HNC Business (RQF) in this subject.
Internal progression from Barking & Dagenham College’s HNC Business is considered the entry mode for applicants, but this should not be regarded as automatic, and you will be required to attend an interview to establish your suitability for progression to year 2.

This will include reviewing your ability in academic writing, self-directed study, and research in determining whether you have achieved sufficient levels in these areas to be able to succeed on the HND.

For external applicants, you will be required to attend an interview.

Providing applicants can demonstrate sufficient independent study skills, there are no parts of the programme for which it is anticipated that reasonable adjustment cannot be made for students with disabilities and/or particular needs.
