A Level Applied Business is different from A Level Business Studies in a number of ways. Firstly, as the "Applied" title suggests we try to give you a greater involvement with businesses; so more trips to businesses, more research of real businesses, a one week work placement in the first year and a greater development of the personal skills you will need to do well in a business. Secondly, the Applied course is worth 2 A Levels, so you spend double the amount of time on it than on Business Studies. Thirdly, it involves more coursework.
What our students say......"What I like about Applied Business is that there are so many things to learn and every lesson is different. In one lesson you may be investigating a business and the next lesson you may be developing a product but in many ways they are related as you can transfer skills from one lesson to another." (Andrew Fagan)
"I have a strong interest in business and for this reason I decided to study Applied Business as it seemed to be a stimulating and useful subject, and provided me with the option to focus on coursework rather than exams."(Brittany Heyes)
