For students who do not live or come from an English language speaking country, we recommend taking an IELTS course to improve your language to level 5.5 or higher. This can be done simultaneously along our courses. Your minimum level of English may vary depending upon which university you decide to complete your top up qualification from.
You will need to have an IELTS score of level 5.5 or above on completion of the BMLBS course. You can study an English course alongside the BMLBS course. For Level 4/5 you will require a full secondary education to be eligible to enroll onto the course and for universities will require a minimum age before embarking on the university top-up programme. At Level 7, you will require 5 years managerial experience if you do not have a BA degree. However, this may vary for various University partners. We will look at every application individually on a case to case basis.
There is no interview process. You will have to fill out a short application form to make sure you meet the criteria.
Learners should first visit the BMLBS Course page to view the range of courses on offer, to decide on which subject best suits the learner. He/she should:
It is important that learners do not try to extend themselves too far and too quickly, so they should ideally choose a path that comfortably moves on from their existing level of skills and experience.
You can simply choose your course and enroll online, via the BMLBS course page. Alternatively you can call the BMLBS Enrollment team on 02071010703 and they will guide you through the Enrolment process.
All initial submissions of an assignment are included within your original fees. If a student does not receive a pass mark for their assignment they may resubmit the work. Each student is provided with 8 free resubmissions. Nevertheless, if further resubmissions are still required, they will be charged at a rate of £30 per submission.
We recommend students to write between 5000 – 8000 words for each assignment, although students will not be penalised for going over this word count limit as long as the work is related to the assignment question.
Assignments are released to students upon enrolment.
After an assignment has been submitted, results are available within 10 working days. Once all assignments have been completed and marked an Internal Verifier will check the work, which usually takes up to 10 working days. After the Internal Verification has come back, and the initial marking agreed, all of the assignments are sent to ATHE for External Verification. ATHE will validate to ensure work is of the correct standard. This process can take up to 30 working days. So, actually the whole marking process until final result, may take up to 40 working days.
Yes. Once BMLBS has received the cleared funds, the course material will be released immediately.

Learners who achieve a BMLBS qualification are automatically mapped against a standard UK Higher Education qualification framework in line with a universally recognised framework of credits. Universities can therefore award credits against the BMLBS study, to give exemptions from large parts of their formal programmes. BMLBS and ATHE have pre-agreed arrangements with several universities to provide credits against programmes either on campus or off campus. This is termed ‘university top-up’.
The Boston Management and Law Business School Ltd is a company registered in the UK under English Law-7750588
The Boston Management and Law Business School is dedicated to providing a wide range of Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses at affordable costs. All learning activities, materials and content are provided online using modern delivery models to make learning more engaging and cost effective. On completion of a BMLBS course, the credits are used to “top up” at one of our UK University partners, saving you time and money.
All details can be edited through the student dashboard. Once a student has enrolled they can login a view their course progress, edit their profile and chat to fellow students in the forum.
Access to the BMLBS Dashboard is for a maximum of 4 years from date of enrolment. This can be extended following a formal request made in writing to BMLBS Student Admin.
If learners have lost or forgotten their log in details, a new password can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
The BMLBS programmes are mapped against UK higher education qualifications, which are fully transferable to a range of other higher education routes and professional qualifications. On completion of the BMLBS Level 4/5 programme, students are awarded 240 credits equivalent to first 2 years of an Undergraduate Degree. They can then top up to their final year at one of our University partners who recognise the ATHE qualification. Similarly, Level 7 students gain 120 credits from a total of 180 credits for an MBA. This can also be used to top-up at a BMLBS University partner.
Once the final year at university is successfully completed, a full BA degree or postgraduate qualification will open doors to many career options in respective fields.
You can seek help from dedicated forums or request tutor help. Students can interact and help each other through the course content and share interesting and relevant links with each other. We also have a dedicated tutor support team all specialising in specific BMLBS modules.
All students having enrolled onto a course can communicate with other students via the social learning forum. Students are encouraged to network through forums.
Learners can use the social learning forums without limitation and talk to fellow learners around the world. Learners may also choose to purchase additional tutor support. Tutors will also present webinars on demand which can be purchased by students.
You need to complete all the modules and assessments detailed in your required course to complete the BMLBS course and receive the ATHE diploma. This will give you the recognized University credits. You can study the modules at your own pace and can purchase more modules at any time.
As long as you have internet access, any computer or tablet can be used to complete online modules and courses. You can also study on your phone with our mobile friendly contents.
Yes, but this will only be accessible with an internet connection. All digital interactivity has been coded for compatibility on touch screens. You can also learn the material by printing it off.
The modules themselves are sufficient for passing the associated assessments. The modules contain additional accessible resources that learners may wish to follow through to enhance their learning and these are provided within the text. BMLBS also has extra learning resources to purchase like e-books and webinars to aid your study.
Each module and assessment passed generates a certificate of completion which details module content, level of study and learning outcomes achieved. It is mapped against formal UK educational quality guidelines defined by QAA. On completion of all modules you can then write assignments set by ATHE to complete your ATHE Diploma with BMLBS.
Learners can learn at a pace that suits them. There is no time limit or deadlines with BMLBS. Learners can study the modules in any order at any time.
There are no exemptions or credits within the BMLBS system of study and you have to study all the BMLBS modules to take advantage of our access route. However, if you think you may be eligible for exemptions from a certain level, then you are recommended to contact BMLBS who will advise you accordingly. BMLBS can also help you with your top up enquiries if you have already got the necessary qualifications.
Students can study the modules in any order and at any pace. To qualify for the University Top-up, all the modules and assignments have to be completed.
Learners, who complete the full programme of modules and the assignments, are awarded an ATHE certificate and official Credits. This qualification is recognised by UK higher education authorities and by the university sector. The student can then apply to one of our University partners to complete their degree.
All modules have an online assessment. Completion of the requisite number of assessments and written assignments will give the participant a qualification recognised by many top line universities.
Assessments are made up of 30 multiple choice questions and last for one hour. There is an assessment at the end of each module. Questions are answered in sets of five to allow for review and editing if required. If a session times out or an issue occurs throughout, the assessment will time out at the point of the previous five questions so that a participant does not lose their previous answers. Results are given immediately on completion. More details are available from the Assessment Section. On completion of all modules and assessments, learners then write assignments set by ATHE to complete the course.
The interactive activities in the modules include tests, exercises and assessments that provide a guide to a learner’s progress through the module.
BMLBS has a network of overseas banks that will take payment direct or alternatively by Credit /Debit card. Alternatively we have representatives in many overseas countries and you can contact them to make payment and for tutor support and help.
