Our undergraduate degrees with a foundation year are an alternative entry route into university for those without more traditional qualifications or grades, or are entering university after a notable period of time out of education. The programme offers support and guidance in developing the skills required for degree-level study. The foundation year will focus specifically on communication (oral and written), critical thinking, research, independent study, digital and employability skills. The modules are designed to embed the development of these skills within the broad areas of business, communications, humanities and social sciences. On successful completion of the foundation year, students will automatically progress on to the first year of our International Business Management programme
Students will take four core modules as part of the foundation year: Personal Learning Competencies, Taking a professional Approach; Thinking Critically, Creatively and Ethically, The Individual Project, London: A Global City and Fundamentals of Business Management
You will be assessed in a variety of ways that test your knowledge, understanding and skills throughout the degree. The programme uses a broad range of assessments including business reports, essays, practical exercises, presentations, case studies, examinations, seminar performance and simulation exercises. As well as traditional exam-based assessments and coursework, the degree makes use of online technology, such as building wikis and online seminar discussion.
