Studying Business with the Career Ready Programme has provided me with endless opportunities such as a paid six-week internship in London and a business mentor from RBS! The course teachers are incredibly supportive and really do want the best for you. If you work hard your opportunities are endless on this course.Katie Buckle - Business Level 3
