Course summary

The programme combines the multidisciplinary nature of business studies provision together with awareness of the applied logistical and operational elements of event management. During the second and final years of the programme, you will be able to demonstrate your acquired knowledge and skills through the conceptual planning, design and implementation of their own events. There is a primary focus on the development of students’ intellectual and practical skills that will support you both as learners and as future managers. Modules are designed to be active and experiential so that the skills and knowledge you develop can be implemented in realistic settings. By its nature, Business Management is a multi-disciplinary programme that will explore a range of areas.

You are encouraged to take a placement in the third year of your studies and have the opportunity to undertake a 10 week placement as part of your final year studies. The programme takes advantage of the enviable opportunities presented by the scale, wealth and diversity of events in the local and regional area.

English language requirements

TestGradeAdditional details
IELTS (Academic)6
PTE Academic50

The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
