Exclusively for ABE centres: BA (Hons) Business Administration (top-up) (online) from the University of Hertfordshire

Top up image

Through our exclusive partnership with the University of Hertfordshire (UH), ABE accredited centres can market a seamless journey to a degree from a leading UK university as part of the ABE value proposition thereby benefitting from an incredible advantage in the market.  The UH BA (Hons) Business Administration (top-up) (online) is a fantastic opportunity to turbocharge enrolments and generate revenue.

How the top-up works

On successful completion of an ABE Level 5 Diploma, students' enrolment onto the top-up degree is entirely managed by their centre and ABE head office.  The offer is exclusively available to centres accredited to offer ABE Level 5 and marketing can include the degree pathway as a central part of the centre's offer.  This helps our centres reinforce their academic credibility and grow enrolments.

The teaching of the degree is solely through UH's online platform, with an enrolment fee paid to the centre.  Centres also have the option of offering paid-for pastoral and academic support.
