This two-year programme is designed to provide you with a basis for entering a career in human resource management, training or industrial relations, or in other employment related fields. Additionally, you will develop your understanding of the role of business in society and develop knowledge of the main functional areas; accounting and marketing. You will develop an understanding of HR policies and practices. You will study the disciplines underlying human resource management and their application. You will also take a broader view of issues and trends in employment. You will also be able to work on a work based learning project, giving you hands-on experience. You don’t need any prior knowledge of business studies or accounting before choosing this subject. You will gain a broad introduction to the subject in your first year and study more specialist subjects in the second year. The benefits of studying a Foundation Degree with us includes high rates of tutorial support and access to tutors, smaller class sizes and access to all the facilities on the University Campus including full University of Hertfordshire student status. This gives you access to our Learning Resources Centres open 24/7(during term time), Hertfordshire Sports Village, StudyNet – a virtual learning environment providing online course materials, and our Students’ Union where you can join a club, meet new people and enjoy a taste of university life. Did you know the course fees are lower for studying a Foundation Degree? Studying a Foundation Degree with us really does give you the best of both worlds. Foundation Degrees are nationally recognised intermediate level higher education qualifications. They emphasise work-based learning and focus on the development of your employability skills along both personal and professional development.
