Many people have ambitions to go to university and build a successful career, however, for some life simply gets in the way. The BTEC Level 5 National Diploma in Business Accounting and Finance is a lifeline to anyone who wants to get started with their career in finance without diving straight into a three-year degree course. The course equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue a career or further education in finance. Students who complete the HND course can still attend university but will jump straight into the third year to top their qualification up to a BSc. It is an economically favorable path designed for those who may not have the time, money, means or desire to undertake a full-time university degree.
