BTEC in Belgium

BSB offers BTECs as one of its three pre-university academic routes, allowing students to choose between Pearson BTEC International Level 3 qualifications in Business, Hospitality and Sport.

Sitting alongside our IB and A Level routes, our BTEC routes reflect the breadth of choice available to our students. Many students also combine BTECs with A Levels, giving an even wider variety of options.

Why choose BTEC

The two-year BTEC course is an excellent choice for students who prefer continuous assessment to traditional examinations. The courses tend to be practical in orientation, providing an excellent bridge to both further study at university and the world of work.

BTECs at every level

Hospitality and Sport can both be taken as a certificate, equivalent to half an A Level, or as a Subsidiary Diploma, equivalent to a full A Level. BTEC Business can be taken at certificate or subsidiary diploma level or additionally as a Diploma. Finally, BSB offers the Pearson BTEC International Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business & Hospitality and Business & Sport.

BTECs are primarily recognised in the UK but are also accepted as a pre-university qualification by some universities in other countries such Canada, Ireland and the USA.

Significantly, BSB is now able to offer a BTEC route to higher education in the Netherlands and Belgium. BSB students interested in this path can opt to pursue the Pearson BTEC International Level 3 Extended Diploma Qualification. This combination of BTECs is equivalent to the Dutch MBO Level 4 Diploma, giving students access to Dutch Universities of Applied Science and many university colleges/hogescholen in Belgium.

Success of BTEC at BSB

BTEC results for BSB students are very impressive.  Students in summer 2020 achieved a 100% pass rate, with 56% of all grades at Distinction* (the highest grade and equivalent to an A* in A Level) and 89% of all grades at Merit or higher.
