Course summary

The FdSc Law with Business at Truro and Penwith College provides an exciting opportunity for you to study degree-level law in Cornwall and has several distinctive features. These include excellent links with the University of Plymouth and a teaching team that includes both legal professionals and academics. The inclusion of Business modules adds another dimension to the course, and this inter-disciplinary approach provides context and a deeper understanding of the subject. The inclusion of business modules helps to increase the value of the foundation degree. One of our graduates, Rema, qualified as a barrister and had this to say about the mix of business and law. “Upon starting the FdSc all I knew was that I wanted to have a career that used the law to solve people’s problems. Because I already had a background in business, I found the business modules to be very interesting … they are a great way to learn the key skills such as marketing and basic finances and knowledge of business structures etc. These are all valuable transferable skills that are not only an asset to a lawyer but can be taken anywhere in any career.” This programme has been designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge base required to work in your chosen specialism or to take advantage of other graduate opportunities. It is also a platform from which you can undertake additional academic, and in some instances professional, qualifications. Past students have gained employment within a variety of fields, including law, education, local government and estate agency. Some have gained exemptions from qualifications offered by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) or progressed to postgraduate study. Others have used their business skills to create their own businesses and become self-employed. Students who successfully complete the FdSc Law with Business may progress to one of the following: •LLB (Hons) (Year 2) (University of Plymouth) ^ •BSc (Hons) Law with Business (Year 3) (University of Plymouth) •BA (Hons) Business Enterprise and Leadership (Year 3) (Truro College) ^ Please note that progression on to the LLB (Hons) is dependant on achieving an overall aggregate of 50% for the Foundation Degree.
