Business Foundation Course

YEAR 13 // AGE 17–18

Our Business Foundation Course is a one-year course with focus on business which allows a fast track access to universities in the United Kingdom. This course was designed by our team in collaboration with a number of universities with whom Padworth has strong links. The aim is to ensure that the course is in line with the academic expectations of the universities and that students will be accepted by those universities upon completion of the course.

Course Components

  • Law
  • Finance
  • Business
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Students have a weekly tutorial session with the course coordinator. The assessment of the Business Foundation Course is done internally and takes place at the end of each term. The overall result is an average of the final coursework grade (40% weighting) and an average of the written examination (60% weighting), both of which are assessed by teachers and the Course Coordinator.

During and upon completion of the course our University and Careers Advisor guides and supports each student through the UCAS application process. In the past students who have successfully completed this course have gained places at the following universities: Aston University, Royal Holloway, University of Buckingham, Middlesex University, South Bank University, Oxford Brookes University, De Montfort, Southampton Solent and many others. A variety of business-related courses including International Business Management, Business and Marketing and Management and Strategy are popular choices for students at university.
