Course summary

**BA (Hons) Business Studies with Foundation Year**This degree offers you the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. **Why choose this course?** This well-regarded degree gives you the decision-making and problem-solving abilities you need to become ‘business-ready’. You will gain a deep understanding of why businesses perform in the way that they do, along with valuable research and analytical skills to support business decision-making and problem-solving. **Is this course for you?** Including a foundation year as part of your four-year study programme will give you a head start in your academic and professional life. The foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence – with extensive support from our expert staff – before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you. Our degrees with a foundation year are continuous, meaning that you won’t need to apply again once you have successfully completed the first year. **How you will learn** Find your niche: you’ll explore the full spectrum of business areas, then decide where your interests lie. In stages two and three, almost half the course comprises optional modules so you can chart your own direction – anything from consumer behaviour to financial markets. **Opportunities and experiences** Work-related learning is key, with business consultancy projects, an optional placement year and summer internship opportunities. You can also gain the Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership as this course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute. **Careers and employability**You’ll graduate as a versatile professional with a thorough understanding of essential business disciplines plus practical data collection and research skills. Many students advance to graduate training schemes with major companies or secure roles in areas like finance, HRM, sales, marketing and project management.
