We are committed to your development as a skilled and inquiring student, ethically engaged with the world and its future, and aim to use a variety of methods and approaches tailored to your individual needs in order to achieve this. The modules in the first semester employ a mix of lectures, tutorials, and online material provided via our virtual learning environment (VLE), as well as student-centred workshops and learning exercises. This provides you with a wide range of differentiated activities, and plenty of regular 1:1 feedback and support throughout the first Semester.

Building on this, teaching in the second semester uses also includes individual supervision specifically to support your ‘Individual Project’. Study on all these modules is supported by the Communication and Academic Skills for HE module. In this way, basic skills learned and developed in semester 1 are integrated and further developed in semester 2, with appropriate individualised support and scaffolding provided throughout. At the end of this process, you should be a more independent, self-confident learner ready to embark on degree level study at Level 4.

Our teaching team will share with you their expert knowledge, experience and research insights during stimulating lectures, seminars and practical workshops.

You'll be taught over two semesters each year, taking three modules per semester. Typically, you'll have around 12 contact hours per week, depending on your module choices, in addition to independent learning.

Seminars in smaller groups will enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures and you'll also be supported by your academic personal tutor.
Your final year project will be based on a live brief from a relevant industry.

Independent study
When not attending lectures, seminars, workshops or other timetabled sessions you'll continue learning through self-study. Typically, this involves reading journal articles and books, undertaking research in the library, working on projects, and preparing for coursework assignments/examinations, workshops and seminars. Your module tutor will direct you towards specific readings and/or activities to complete before class.



You'll be assessed by a number of methods including essays, reports, business simulations, presentations, reflective logs, computer based assessments, examinations, and case studies. Some modules include group assessments to help you become familiar with working as a team; often a key aspect of professional and graduate level work.

The nature of the assessment depends on the modules you take. This mixture is intended to build individual knowledge and skills in the application of theory and best practice to realistic business scenarios. It also provides valuable experience in the importance of effective teamwork and leadership in achieving goals.
