Get ahead in Business: Study for an HNC in Business Studies


Whether you’re just starting out in business or looking to advance your career, our new HNC Business Studies course could be just what you’re looking for.

According to recent ‘You Gov’ research, 62% of large companies have recruited employees with Higher BTEC qualifications: so what better way to make yourself more employable and do so in the comfort of your own home!

And for those of you with Higher Education ambitions, look at the following statistics: well over 100,000 BTEC Learners apply to UK universities every year and our BTEC Higher National Business Studies course is accepted by over 150 UK universities and higher education institutes for relevant degree programmes, either on its own, or in combination with other A Levels.

Before you start on any higher learning course, you should take a moment to reflect whether it would be right for you and whether you can successfully complete the course.


Today’s BTEC Higher Nationals are demanding, as you would expect of the most respected applied learning qualifications in the UK.  As a Learner on a BTEC course:

  • You must be organised, take assessments that we have set and mark, and keep a portfolio of your assignments.
  • You will be studying at home, in your own time, so personal discipline and time management skills are essential.
  • You must be able to follow online course instructions and workbooks, and therefore access to the internet and a pc/laptop are minimum requirements.

Oxford Learning College has a high success rate of graduates moving on to other University courses or higher education opportunities. We are also proud of the fact that many of our business learners:

• Return to us to complete other, associated professional qualifications

• Give positive feedback on our tuition and support

If you’re planning on using the HNC Business Studies course to further your career and secure an advanced employment opportunity, what does this course actually offer you? Built into all the BTEC Higher National units, are opportunities for you to practise and learn employable skills.

• Cognitive and problem-solving skills: the use of critical thinking, applying creative and expert solutions to non-routine problems, and the use of systems and technology

• Intrapersonal skills: communicating with others, working in collaboration with others, negotiating and influencing others, and self-presentation

• Interpersonal skills: self-management, adaptability and resilience, self-monitoring and development. There are also specific requirements in some of the units for assessment of these skills where relevant.

So whether you want a better job or a University place at the end of your course, you’ll be poised for success. All you have to do is be honest with yourself about whether studying at home is right for you – we’ll take care of everything else, you just have to decide to commit!
