Our teaching supports students in reaching their potential in the course. We recognise the diversity of learning styles and techniques they will use and offer a variety of means through which they can engage with the subject: lectures, seminars, discussions, presentations, visiting speakers, digital materials, coursework and tutorials.
We offer timely feedback from tutors. We also value the learning from students’ experiences with other work and organisations and support their reflections on their academic and personal development. We encourage them to develop skills relevant to life and work as well as for academic study. Typically, teaching takes place in face to face mode and in on-line environments and is informed by student feedback.
A wide variety of assessment methods are employed to develop both academic and professional skills. The overall emphasis within the programme is on coursework assessment. There is a formal or 'summative' assessment at the end of each module. This will include essays, reports, presentations, computer-based projects, reflective and critical assignment, research activities and case studies. Examinations and Time-constrained assessments may be used to recognise end of module achievement, particularly where professional body accreditation is offered, and may involve unseen or open-book exercises.
Each year, there is a 40 credit Work-Based Learning project which supports you in the practical application of your studies in your workplace.
You will receive feedback on formal assessments undertaken by coursework. Feedback on examination performance is available upon request from the module leader. Feedback is intended to help you learn and you are encouraged to discuss it with your module tutor. We aim to provide you with feedback within 15 working days of hand-in.
Successful completion of a Foundation Degree in Business and Management prepares you for new and/or existing employment opportunities and development.
This course allows you to continue your studies towards a Bachelor’s degree in a related subject. Students who study on this degree programme often apply to study on our BSc (Hons) Business Studies Level 6 Top programme available during a day or evening route.
The college recognises the importance of professional body accreditation, to ensure that not only do we deliver well-researched courses, but also that our students meet the professional expectations of prospective employers and have the opportunity to gain professional body qualifications.
We also offer modules accredited by the Association of Project Management (APM). Our Project Management module was the first from a university to gain accreditation and exemption for its teaching and assessment.
The University Centre has accreditation with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). The year two modules of Management and Leadership, Project Management, Management Accounting and Human Resource Management are accredited by the CMI and on successful completion you will be eligible for CMI Level 5 qualifications in Leadership and Management.
The college has close links with the college’s Business School and benefit from the Employers Advisory Board that has established partnerships with representatives from across the private and public sector.
