I am looking at entering in a level 4/5 extended diploma in business management in the new year. As I work full time, I am already committed and can't do anything full time, so I would enter a course through distance learning. I've had a look round and OBS offers a relatively good price and am wondering if any student has previously looked at going with this company, and why you did/didn't go with them? If you did, are they worth the money?

Also, it states that when you complete the level 4/5 extended diploma, you can go to university to do a 'top-up degree' where you can get a full undergraduate degree at specific universities. Does anybody know if you go ahead with this, if it states anywhere on your certificates that this was a 'top-up degree'? I don't know if this would make my degree look any less of one, if it does state that?!

Hi Steve,

I completed the level 4/5 Extended Diploma with Online Business School 4 months ago - i got accepted for my Top up at Northampton, starting next month.

I was told the degree certificate or transcript does not state 'online' or 'top up'.

I hope this helps.

I am currently studying with the Online Business School on the MBA pathway. I, like you, am working full time and could not commit to actually attending a University. As you said it is a great price for what I will gain when I finish and even better I can do it in my own time, you don't have to commit to specific times for lectures etc all of the content is made ready and available for when I am free to use it which means I can do as little or as much as I want in week for example and can even finish the course earlier than expected if I forged through and got it done.

If you do decide to study with the OBS, which I would recommend, you will be pleasantly surprised with how professional and efficient the process is.

Hi how was your experience with Northampton and would you advice anyone to go forth and apply with OBS?
