Each level is made up of four modules each worth 30 credit points. Typically a student must complete 120 credits at each level. All students will be provided with the University regulations during the induction period, and at each level of study full details of each module will be provided in module descriptors and student module guides.

Full details of modules and credit weighting can be found in the programme specification.

Students will have a tutor allocated to them at each level of study. Each student will have a series of individual tutorials to review and reflect on programme progress to-date and forthcoming milestones. All students will be encouraged to develop an Individual Learning Plan. Group tutorials are arranged as required to allow students to consolidate employability and core key skills and to ensure they are aware of progression options at all stages of their programme.

Workload for this course

At the heart of the programme lies the combination of theory, business practice and the development of skills those required in the immediate future for study and those subsequently required for employment. Lecturing staff with significant work experience expose students to current business developments, whilst industry guest speakers provide additional opportunities to relate these to practice. Furthermore, assignments typically require substantial primary and secondary research to be undertaken, thereby ensuring students progressively develop research skills at each level of the programme. Assessments are presented in a range of formats including formal reports, presentations and IT based formats such as website and thus develop a range of presentation skills.
