Course summary

This is a degree with enterprise at its core, which will give you the perfect balance of academic theory and practical experience, through real-world learning. Where better to learn entrepreneurship than from within an international FTSE 100 company? You’ll learn business as it really is in the corporate and entrepreneurial world of London, through regular industry events, interaction with our industry partners and start-ups in residence, guaranteed internships (subject to eligibility criteria) and lots of opportunities to build your employability skills through our Talent Development programme. You'll be taught by industry-experienced tutors, many of whom are also entrepreneurs who have created successful companies.

Assessment method

Formative assessment Each module contains at least one piece of practice or ‘formative’ assessment for which you receive feedback. Formative assessments are developmental and do not count towards your overall module mark. Summative assessment As you will be able to personalise your degree by choosing elective modules to suit your needs, we cannot provide a precise break-down of your assessments. Typically, your assessment will be designed to reflect the kind of activities you may be asked to carry on in the workplace, either individually or as part of a team. For example, writing reports, analysing data, preparing strategies and presentations. You’ll also submit different types of coursework and sit written exams as part of the assessment for some modules. Apart from receiving feedback for your formative assessment, you will also receive feedback for your coursework and practical exams, and upon request, for your written examinations. Here is the assessment breakdown for the core modules: First year (level 4) 50% coursework 25% written exams 25% oral assessment Second year (level 5) 80% coursework 15% written exams 5% oral assessment Third year (level 6) 65% coursework 35% oral assessment Apart from receiving feedback for your formative assessment, you will also receive feedback for your coursework and practical exams, and upon request, for your written examinations. Progression In order to progress to the next stage (from first to second year, and from second to third year), you will have to achieve 120 credits at the end of the academic year.
