The Undergraduate Level 4/5 Extended Diploma in Management is a 240 credit course designed to fast track students to the final year of an associated Undergraduate BA in Business and Management Degree course, which can either be completed at a UK university on campus or via distance learning.
This course is made up of 10 Level 4 modules (120 credits) and 10 level 5 modules (120 credits). If a student decides to only study at Level 4 they will only receive 120 credits and can apply for an exemption from the first year of a university Degree course.
Each module consists of approximately 40 guided learning hours of material with an additional 30-50 hours of optional learning material. These materials comprise recommended exercises, recommended readings and internet resources.
Am I Eligible For This Progamme?
To enrol in a Level 4 course, you must be at least 18 and have a full secondary education. Before enroling onto the Level 5 course, you must have attained a Level 4 or equivalent.
How Will I Be Assessed ?
Assessment at Online Business School is a very straight forward process:
- After you have completed an online module, you will have an online assessment. This assessment contains 30 multiple-choice questions. You will have one hour to complete these questions which are answered in sets of five so you will have plenty of time to review and edit your answers. After an hour the test will automatically time out.
- After you have completed the test, your results will be displayed immediately. If you have passed, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. If you didn’t pass, you will receive a notification of a “refer’’ where you will be told how to retake a module assessment. You can complete these modules at your own pace, as there is no deadline to complete the course.
- When the online modules have been successfully completed, you will then be able to take the final eight written assignments that test your knowledge. After successful completion of these eight assignments you will receive your ATHE Diploma.
- You will then be eligible to apply for progression onto a BA/ MBA Top up course through a recognised UK university.
Successful completion of the full Level 4/5 Extended Diploma in Management and final year of an accredited Undergraduate Degree programme will give students the right credentials to go on and apply for a job in marketing, accounting, human resources, management or business consultancy.
