Find out more about the TEF.

A foundation degree is a degree-level qualification that takes two years to complete, and is equivalent to the first two years of a traditional honours degree. Foundation degrees focus on relevant, work-based skills within a particular career route or profession, and are designed to increase employability and progression opportunities. Employers are actively involved in the development of foundation degree programmes to ensure you are ready for employment when you complete your studies. At the end of a foundation degree you have the option to ‘top-up’ your qualification with an additional third year of study to convert it into a full honours degree.

This Foundation Degree will equip you with the skills to progress and succeed in a variety of careers within business, providing you with experience in disciplines such as finance, management and marketing. On successful completion of the FdA, you could progress onto the BA (Hons) Leadership and Management at South Devon College.

An integral element of the course is working with local employers on projects and assessments, and building relevant industry experience. You will be working with businesses and community groups on live marketing and business strategy projects, where you will apply the theoretical knowledge you develop during your studies.

The curriculum has been designed to consider a varied approach to business. You will gain an understanding of topics such as the economic principles underlying business behaviour, the key internal functions and relationships within organisations and the legal factors that affect business.

You will develop a broad and transferable skillset, enabling you to seek employment in almost any sector upon completion, as well as opening up enterprise opportunities. You will refine your research, leadership and management skills, and a focus on professional and personal development means that you will develop critical and reflective practice, ensuring that you will be a success in any area you choose when you graduate.
