Course Overview

The Level 3 Edexcel Extended Diploma is a practical business-related course equivalent to 3 GCE A Levels and provides both a broad foundation of business education and a firm basis for specialism in finance and accounting. This two-year programme is full-time, Monday to Friday (16 to 18 hours per week).

Entry Requirements

5 GCSEs at grade C or above (including English Language and Maths) OR a First Diploma (merit grade) OR relevant work experience

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Qualification Obtained

BTEC Extended Diploma in Business (QCF)

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.
