Foundation Diploma in Business



This one-year Foundation in Business is a BTEC Level 3 diploma created for students who are strongly motivated to pursue a career in the field of business or progression to higher level courses at Prague College.

The diploma provides a programme of study manageable in a year so that learners can create and then build on their achievement.  It encourages progression for those learners who wish to undertake a one-year course of study because of individual circumstances or having missed out previous high school studies. 
Why take this diploma?

Develop and enhance your business skills through practical, hands-on projects. A focus on employability and soft skills also gives you a distinct advantage in the workplace, as well as preparation for higher education if you decide to study further.

The programme is open to anyone who lacks the standard entry requirements to university, or those who would like to improve their skills and qualifications for either work or future studies.

Students who successfully complete the Foundation Diploma programme may progress to the first year of the Bachelor's degree programmes in either International Management or International Finance and Business Accounting, both available at Prague College.
