University of Chichester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This course is brought to life with practice-based topics run in conjunction with industry and delivered by lecturers who have developed their skills in the business world. The programme contains all aspects of business, including: marketing; finance; human resource management; business strategy and information technology.
Our methods are different to many other universities as the majority of learning takes place in group workshops, in an interactive, participative environment. Modules are designed to be active and experiential so that the skills and knowledge you develop can be implemented in realistic settings. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a 10-week work placement as part of your final year studies.
You will learn through practice-based modules. Topics equip you for a graduate career in many business fields and industries. You will explore a full range of business and management disciplines, including Marketing, Human Resource Management, Business Strategy, Accounting and Finance, Information Systems, Operations Management and Research Skills for business.
Your first year of study provides the building blocks for the degree, as well as any specialisation you choose. At the same time, you focus on key employability skills including personal and team development skills. As you progress through the degree programme, you will choose option modules to help you specialise in key business areas. In your final year of study with us, instead of a traditional theory-based dissertation, you will undertake a Management Project focussing on a key business problem to demonstrate your practical understanding of business.

English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
