In a truly global economy, today's business graduates need to think with an international mindset when it comes to business planning and selling goods and services to overseas markets. This exciting new applied business course is designed to offer a diverse and well-rounded ​education, mixed with the opportunity to undertake a year's work placement to prepare you for the national or international graduate job market. Foundation Year The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Business with International Business Management honours degree programme yet. Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria). ​The carefully designed suite of tried-and-tested modules will enable you to become competent in managing people, money, markets and products, and you will develop your analytical, planning and information management skills within a business context, so that by the time you graduate you will be fully prepared to tackle the challenges of the real business world. Moreover, if you currently hold a HND or Foundation degree and wish to continue studying to achieve a full BA (Hons) degree, you can apply to join this degree in the final year.

Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose. ​We understand that students perform differently depending on the type of assessment they are given and so a range of assessment methods is used on the programme. These include written assignments (essays/reports, individual/group), exams (closed book), practical assessments, individual and group presentations, portfolios, reflective logs and a dissertation. There could be up to three assessments per module, for example a presentation, report and exam. Written feedback is provided within 15 working days of submission, but you can also get face-to-face feedback from your tutor. We believe that constructive feedback is vital in helping you identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to develop further.
