    Hello!
    The pre-sessional course has been starting already anyway. And yes, I am currently studying at Kent.
    Have you started the course too?

    Hello. Sure. They require HND with merit profile or foundation degree and English proficiency test (for international students). Honestly, I am in love with the university and the surrounding itself. The people here are friendly and it is peaceful. Course-wise, I would say I am quite happy as it suits me well. If I may suggest, it will be great to go the course details online and check for the modules offered to BA (Hons) Business Top-Up students. Hope this helps

    Thanks for the great reply, once the course is finished is the qualification held in the same regard as doing a normal business degree? Finally, how many days and hours are you in? Many Thanks

    You're welcome! When the course is finished, you will be awarded with BA (Hons) Business degree - which is a normal business degree. However, I notice that actually Kent themselves do not offer BA (Hons) Business degree for students that starts the whole 3 to 4 years, that is the only distinction, but not a big deal really. Days and hours depend on the modules that you choose. I opted for the dissertation module, which is worth 30 credits and focuses on independent study - hence, I do not have much study hours for this module. From the modules that I am taking, I got 3 hours lecture, 2 hours seminar and 3 hours workshop; and two days off during the weekdays.

    I didn't. Most likely because I am an international student, although I'm not sure whether an interview will be used for assessment or not.

    Greetings of the day!

    I've completed a 2-Year Diploma Program from Miami Ad School, Berlin. Would this diploma be equivalent to a HND as offered in the UK? I'm an international student from India, have done my A-Levels in the UK and have interned with various companies around the world as a part of my program.

    Thanks
