Course summary

TEF Silver

Birmingham City University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This flexible and wide-ranging course allows you to tailor your studies to your interests, from small business management to digital marketing.

With a wide range of modules to choose from, you’ll be able to follow a path that will lead to your future career, with previous students progressing into roles with high-profile organisations such as N Power and Zurich.

This is a unique way of gaining your degree, allowing you get to specialise your learning and choose your own bespoke timetable. There’s a lot of guidance from your tutor and we get great feedback on the support students get.

Business and administrative courses are in the top 12 degree subjects for getting a job according to the Telegraph. 85 per cent of business graduates nationwide go into work or further study within six months of finishing their degree.

By developing your own personal study programme, you’re showing employers that you’re really committed to those areas. Whatever you choose, you’ll get to apply the theory to practical experience and add that to your CV.

We find that employers regard this as really valuable in a graduate. Many of the students you work with will be doing a slightly different degree and will have come to it from a different route. This means you get to work with a whole range of interesting and diverse students. It’s great for networking, sharing ideas and learning from each other.
