How

These courses provide strong technical skills with an emphasis placed on the application of the knowledge learned. In other words, students are expected to complete specific work tasks, while on-going continuous assessment, teaching and learning methods in a supportive environment, ensure that students become proficient in time management. The small size of our campus allows students to get to know their lecturers and start to take charge of their own learning so as to develop practical work-ready skills.

All of the programmes in the School of Business include a blend of assessments and exams. The blend of assessments allows students to develop key skills for the workplace including project management, organisation skills, team building and conflict management.

“I chose this course because I could continue with the second language I started studying in school. Languages are a big component of the International Business course, for example I am doing French so I got the chance to learn its culture, traditions and even understand the worldwide business context. The best thing about my course is the high number of different subjects you undertake.

Another thing about my course is that you get the chance to travel abroad during the programme. I was in Canada for one semester which was the most fantastic experience I have ever had. I got the opportunity to meet many people from around the world, experience different cultures and visit different cities in Canada.

International Business is a great course if you like the idea of travelling around the world, it has the Erasmus/International Credit Mobility programme in third year. There are a number of countries you can go and study in for one semester or for the full year.”
