Our part-time undergraduate provision has been specifically developed for students in existing employment who wish to strengthen and develop their professional skills. The programme has been developed specifically to meet industry needs, and provides opportunities for students to undertake work-based learning and assessment through real-life case scenarios to foster the skills and knowledge demanded by employers in the business sector.
The part-time provision initially consists of an FdA Business programme which has been successfully mapped onto the level 5 Apprenticeship Framework for Wales to allow this course to be delivered as part of an apprentice programme. All assessments will be specifically work-based and there will be 40 credit work-based projects at level 4 and 5 which will be set within the context of the students' own organisation.
Throughout the degree, you will develop cutting-edge skills in the most prominent of business areas such as leadership and management, the digital business and economic environment, Marketing, Human Resources and much more. As a student, you will have access to a strong network of support from both the University and your fellow students, and what is more, at the end of your Foundation Degree you can choose through further study to top up to a BA (Hons) Business. As part of their degree studies, students will be afforded the opportunity to attend extra curriculum events, meet industry experts and have CMI practitioners provide guest lectures.
