Foundation Year in Business: Course features

What this course offers you

  • The relatively small class sizes, which are a key feature of the learning environment at Kingston College, allows significant interaction and individual monitoring of students by lecturing staff.
  • Lectures use active learning techniques through the use of question and answer sessions, utilising teaching aids such as mini white boards, small group presentations etc. Active learning techniques promote effective engagement by students and provide many opportunities for formative assessment activities that result in near immediate feedback to the students. Additional learning is available through a variety of online resources, which allows formative assessment of understanding and the application of knowledge outside formal class time. These include the use of podcasts, web-based activities, online testing and accessibility to material via their mobile devices through the college's VLE Moodle. Students are directed towards independent study where appropriate, both as enhancement to topics studied or for stand-alone topics.
  • Collaborative and group work activities are key components of the teaching and learning strategy in most modules of the programme, in some cases these are provide opportunities for summative assessment. Effective group work is considered a vital skill for success both within the students' intended degree routes but in the wider context of employability.
  • 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 are well qualified and bring a wealth of current commercial experience to the programme, Lecturing staff with significant work experience will expose students to current business developments, whilst industry guest speakers provide additional opportunities to relate these to practice.
