Regardless of what the nature of your involvement in business is - and whether you are working in the private or public sector - as a business man or woman you will face an array of legal controls and obligations of an unprecedented scope and complexity.
Our Business Law course is designed to introduce students who are preparing for a career in business to some of the legal rules and issues which you will encounter once you enter the world of commerce.
You will not become an expert in any area of the law as a result of studying the course, however at the end of your study of this course it is hoped that you will not only have increased your knowledge about the law as it applies to the business world; but that you would have developed some competence at identifying legal issues, applying legal rules to factual situations and having a European perspective.

I have just completed a Reflexology Diploma Course and also took the exam on completion. The course itself was excellent and in particular I liked the test at the end of each lesson. It refreshes your memory of what you have been studying. The Anatomy and Physiology was the hardest part of the course but with plenty of studying it is achievable. The final exam which you pay for if you want to t...

I did the fast track cou...
I took the online Level 3 Dog Grooming course with the final exam at the end. I know it is just an online course with no practical skills required but this is the next best thing! It provided me with amazing resources and informative modules of different areas. I found this course very good and would definitely recommend it!
thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules. Mostly it was my not reading the question properly, so that is why I made the mistake I did. Thank you for the chance to prove myself as a person in my own right. When people know you have a disabilit...
Excellent opportunity. Highly recommended. Recognised qualifications at the end another personal achievement to add to your portfolio/CV.
