  • Structure and content
  • Teaching and assessment
  • Entry Requirements
  • Employability

This degree combines an understanding of key business concepts, a focus on entrepreneurship skills, and knowledge of e-business solutions and strategies to provide the perfect foundation for the budding business entrepreneur of the future.  Designed to include the development of business start-up,  planning and  internet-based marketing solutions, students are encouraged to explore their creativity and business acumen to maximise their future potential.

This course is offered as a three-year degree programme.

Most degree programmes at LCA have a common first year:

  • 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.

  • We know it can be difficult to decide the exact direction you wish your studies to take.  Our structure allows you to transfer to one of our other degree courses, should you wish to.

  • You therefore do not need to decide your area of specialisation now, you can do so after you join LCA.

Each of the three years will involve the study of four 30 credit core modules each year.

Below are indications of the modules you will study

  • 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 just two days of the week (for example, Mondays and Tuesdays or Thursdays and Fridays).  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.

For entry in 2015, LCA’s standard offer is 260 UCAS tariff points from 3 A levels, eg BCC.

Alternatively, LCA asks for

  • Irish Leaving Certificate BBCCC.

  • Scottish Highers BBCCC.

  • BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma DMM in a business-related subject.

  • IBDP 24 points.

Applicants studying for other qualifications should contact LCA to discuss their circumstances.

We also welcome applications from mature individuals who can demonstrate appropriate, relevant work experience.

All applicants are required to have at least 5 GCSEs at 4 or above including English and Maths.

Students whose first language is not English and who have not previously studied in the UK are required to have IELTS 6.0 or equivalent.  Candidates who meet our academic entry requirements but whose score for IELTS (or an English language test considered the equivalent of IELTS) is below 6.0 can apply for a programme that includes an eight-week pre-sessional English Language course, for which there is an additional fee.

Our published entry requirements are a guide only and our decision will be based on our assessment of your overall suitability for the course.

 

In today’s tough jobs market, graduates need to stand out from the crowd to successfully secure that all important first full-time job after university.  We believe your degree from LCA Business School will definitely enhance your employability:

  • Your LCA lecturers all have first-hand experience of business and some continue to work in business.  You are therefore assured that the content of your degree will be directly relevant to the demanding, constantly evolving world of contemporary business.  Furthermore, you will study business from a practical as well as from an academic perspective.

  • LCA Business School lecturers have a wealth of contacts too and you will study alongside students from all over the world.  All great for networking!

  • Our student-friendly timetables will make it easier for you to secure meaningful, part-time work.  Part-time work will give you valuable experience outside of the classroom and will boost your credentials with a prospective graduate employer.  We are also working with a number of employers to be able to offer part-time work in conjunction with our degrees.

  • During your final year there will be additional seminars with the specific objective of enhancing your future employment prospects.  These will include CV workshops, interview techniques, career counselling and visits from prospective employers.
