BA Business Management with Foundation Year - Full-time

Business Management Students

Foundation year

The foundation year of the programme provides people with non-standard entry qualifications a thorough and supportive academic preparation for successful degree level study in the Management School. The foundation year to this degree is carefully designed to build your confidence in your abilities, develop essential academic and study skills, and provide the subject specific knowledge essential for success.

The foundation year is taught within the Department for Lifelong Learning, where we have nearly forty years’ experience working with adult learners, helping them to unlock their potential to succeed through offering accessible foundation courses that can lead to full and part-time degree level study. During this year, you'll be learning alongside other students who are studying for a number of different degrees, typically in small classes, supporting one another to develop and succeed.

This foundation year also includes a range of opportunities to become involved in the life of the Management School.

Progression to the Management School

Students will progress to the Management School after completing their foundation year, subject to meeting progression thresholds which differ across courses and departments. These will be discussed with applicants at interview. These thresholds can also be found by searching for the relevant degree course within the University's Programme Regulations Finder and viewing information relating to 'Year 0'.
