Higher National Diploma
The HND programme is a two year programme for those wanting to gain a formal academic qualification whilst working.
The course is structured over approximately 30 to 40 days a year, mainly on the basis of a three-day block per month.
Assessments are via work based assignments and examination and require participants to apply their learning to the workplace with the student being asked to collect evidence to demonstrate their achievement.
After completion of the course, students have the opportunity to directly enter into the three semester top-up BA (Hons) in Business Studies. The part-time Bachelor programme is provided on a similar basis of attendance and distance learning, a combination known as ‘blended learning’ which includes support via the ECBM student internet platform.

“ECBM has provided me with a fantastic start to my working life. I have been able to complete the HND and the BA afterwards in a short time alongside full time work. This combination has allowed me to propel my career forward and has given me the confidence to tackle and grasp the many opportunities open to me. I am very grateful for the time I spent at ECBM and highly recommend the programme."
