Course Introduction

If you have the ability but not the qualifications required to apply for our three'year BA Hons Business with Finance programme, this four'year programme will provide you with another route.

It begins with a foundation year that will give you a solid grounding from which to progress to degree'level study. You will gain a thorough introduction to business and an understanding of ethics, enterprise and leadership. You will also learn essential computing, communication and academic writing skills, and how to manage your studies independently.

After your first year, you will study the same courses as those on our three'year BA Hons Business with Finance programme.

What careers could I pursue?

Graduates from this programme have the same career opportunities as those graduating from our three'year programme. These include roles with a specialist financial focus in general management within retail, consultancy, small to medium enterprises and business start'up.
