There is free parking on-site and we are within easy reach of London and Oxford.- Our award-winning small class tutorials ensure every student is known by name and supported throughout their studies, including by dedicated personal tutors.- As pioneers of the two-year degree, we offer a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree and complete your studies a whole year earlier.

This means that our students must start and run a business, as an integral part of their degree. This is not your typical degree programme, as it is split between real world application and theoretical knowledge.The BSc Business Enterprise (BBE) Programme will interest you if you want to:• Start and develop your own new business at the same time as studying for an honours degree.• Make a positive contribution to the strategic development of a family business or other small or medium enterprise.• Develop an entrepreneurial or “can do” approach to life to enhance your future career anywhere.This course provides the opportunity for you to ‘pitch’ for ‘seed-corn’ capital of up to £5,000, enabling you to start and run your own business as an integral part of your honours degree. We offer a range of business subjects that will help you to establish your business and develop your qualities of entrepreneurship, management and innovation.In the first semester, you will learn how to create an effective business plan.
