    Hi,

    I am looking to enrol in a distance learning HND in Business within the next couple of months. I have come across a few options, but there is only one college offering it with EdExcel the awarding body. All the others are ATHE but I have never heard of them. The EdExcel is much more expensive which is no problem, but I am wondering if ATHE is a fully recognised awarding body and will allow me to transfer credits to top this up to a full degree. Has anybody studied with this examining board and would you recommend them over EdExcel?

    Thanks,
