Our Higher National Diploma in Business (Accounting and Finance) course is an essential foundation for a career in managing financial resources.

The 18 month course provides a standard route to the 1st, 2nd or 3rd year of a university degree. The 12 month course provides an intensive, fast-track route – start in October and you can go to the last year of a UK university in October of the following year. Additionally there is a third option of 15 months for those students who prefer a balance in their timetable.
