HND Business and Management
‘I was warmly welcomed back to South & City College Birmingham onto the HND in Business and Management. I had studied the AVCE in Business in 2002. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and I was impressed by the high quality of teaching and professionalism of all the staff. The groups consist of students from a diverse range of back grounds all of which contribute to a rich learning experience. South & City College Birmingham has given me the opportunity as a mature student to gain the qualifications and skills needed to compete in such a competitive job market.’
