Enrolment Requirements & Course Fees
Level 6 Diploma Courses – Enrolment Requirements
You can complete the BCNH Interview Form here (having an interview does not oblige you to enrol on course).
Note that some students with a *Biology A level-equivalent qualification may still be required to complete the Science Foundation Course if the qualification does not include sufficient biochemistry content.
|Holders of overseas qualifications must provide evidence that their qualifications are equivalent to the GCSE’s and A Levels described above.|
A Statement of Comparability can be obtained from the following agency: UK NARIC. This is the company that BCNH and the University of Greenwich use to assess the equivalence of overseas qualifications to UK qualifications and they will be able to tell you what your qualifications are equivalent to.
|If English is not your first language, you will also need to provide an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) certificate with a minimum grade of 7.|
If you do not hold the above qualifications but possess relevant work experience, you can still apply. Your application will be considered on an individual basis.
Step 1: An Interview
Step 2: Place Offer Letter
Once we have received your completed and signed enrolment documents, with the appropriate fee, we will enrol you on the course and confirm your enrolment in writing.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL)
If you’ve recently studied some of our syllabus as part of your previous qualification or study, and if we believe that the subjects have been covered in the same breadth and depth as at BCNH, this may exempt you from particular modules taught on BCNH Diploma programmes.
You can apply for APL following an interview with a member of the BCNH academic board. We will only be able to consider your application for APL once we’ve received the necessary documentary evidence.
We cannot guarantee that your APL application will be successful. However, if we are not able to offer you APL, we will inform you why your request was unsuccessful.
BCNH criteria for a successful APL:
|1.||For each module for which you are applying for APL, you will be required to submit evidence to demonstrate that the syllabus, exams or assignments covered in your previous study match the level, content and standard of the BCNH syllabus, exams and assignments|
|2.||To ensure that your knowledge is current, your previous study needs to have been successfully completed within the last five years.|
|3.||If the above evidence is not sufficient we may ask you to sit BCNH examinations for each module (examination fee for each assignment is £60)|
