Course summary

This BSc Economics and Business with Foundation Year will develop your core knowledge and skills in economics and business management and prepare you to successfully complete a degree in a range of business-related disciplines. The core modules deliver key, cross-disciplinary knowledge in business and economics and you can then decide, via your choice of options, whether to continue studying an interdisciplinary mix or to take a more specialist route.This programme will build your confidence and give you the core knowledge and key skills you need to succeed at university. You will also get a taste of the subject area you are interested in and deepen your understanding of its career potential.Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will automatically progress onto our three-year, full-time evening study BSc Economics and Business or onto one of our other Economics programmes: BSc Economics, BSc Economics and Social Policy, BSc Finance with Accounting or BSc Financial Economics. You need only complete one application and you enrol onto one programme.We also offer part-time Foundation Year degrees which allow you to spread out your Foundation Year studies over two years. As the 'Foundation Year' is made up of 120 credits, as a part-time student you can take 60 credits in each of your first and second years before starting the main four-year BSc Economics and Business. This means that you can take six years to complete the part-time degree with Foundation Year.**HIGHLIGHTS**- Our Foundation Year programmes will fully prepare you for undergraduate study and are ideal if you returning to study after a gap, or if you have not previously studied the relevant subjects, or if you didn't achieve the grades you need for a place on your chosen undergraduate degree.- The Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics brings together research and teaching in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics in a single department which creates significant interdisciplinary synergies.- We have an excellent reputation for the quality of our teaching, providing training for employers such as the Treasury and the Bank of England.- You will be taught by academics who are professional practitioners in the world of economics and international finance, and who provide specialist advice and in-house training for government departments and City firms and banks.- The research of our academics, many of whom are recognised as world-class experts in their fields, feeds directly into our teaching programmes. As a student you can be certain that your tutors are actively working to extend the boundaries of knowledge.
