  • This allows you to gain a broad understanding of the key areas of business which will enable you to appreciate the importance of the different functions – such as HR, marketing, finance – to overall business success.  This will help you in your future career irrespective of the path you take.

Major Project

  • You will have a minimum of twelve hours’ lectures and tutorials a week (so- called ‘contact time’ with a lecturer or tutor).  Each year consists of two semesters of 12 teaching weeks each followed by a period for revision and assessment.

  • The core lectures and tutorials are carefully timetabled to take place on two or three days of the week.  We believe this offers our students more chance of finding meaningful, better-paid part-time work than students at many universities where the few hours’ lectures are spread over the whole of the week.

  • You will be expected to undertake extensive independent study when you are not attending lectures.

  • Your learning experience will be further enhanced by skills sessions, tutor surgeries and guest lectures which are organised throughout the year.

  • Each course module is delivered through a combination of large group lectures - where the main ideas and concepts are presented – and tutorials where students are broken into smaller groups for an interactive discussion and analysis of the lecture content.

  • Students are assessed predominantly through a mix of examination and coursework.
