EF Diploma in Business & ManagementWhat is the EF Diploma in Business and Management?
This is a degree-level program that will prepare you for entry to the second year of a UK undergraduate program in a business or management related field – in just one year. All university bachelor’s degrees in the UK require international students to study an additional year of schooling, known as a University Foundation Year. This diploma combines this extra year of secondary education with the first year of a bachelor’s degree. The result is an intensive 11-month program that allows you to enter the second year of an undergraduate degree after one year instead of two. You will save on program fees, accommodation and living expenses; more importantly, you will be in the workplace a year earlier to start earning money and seeking out crucial promotions.
Validated and recognized program
The EF Diploma in Business and Management Program is validated by the University of Wales and leads to a University of Wales Certificate in Higher Education. It is recognized by a large number of UK universities who accept successful graduates onto the second year of their undergraduate degrees.
Successful graduation ensures your admission, and also prepares you thoroughly for life at university, making sure you achieve the best results possible. In recent years Diploma students have been placed at many prestigious universities including Durham, Exeter, East Anglia, Royal Holloway, Essex, Oxford Brookes and Westminster, to name just a few.
