Birkbeck is different: classes are in the evening, so you can work, study, volunteer, intern or do your own thing during the day. We know the 'standard' university model isn't right for everyone, so our unique evening teaching gives people who care about their future the opportunity to study at one of the world's top research'intensive universities and move forward with their life goals at the same time. We've been helping people access higher education and get back into studying for nearly 200 years, so you'll find a famously friendly and supportive learning environment.
Our new Foundation Year programmes provide the best possible preparation for degree'level study at Birkbeck. They are ideal if you do not meet the entry requirements for the undergraduate degree you would like to study, if you feel you are not quite ready for an undergraduate degree, or if you are returning to study and need extra help and support. Whatever your background and circumstances, Birkbeck's Foundation Year degrees will prepare you for success.
This programme will build your confidence and give you the core knowledge and key skills you need to succeed at university. You will also get a taste of the subject area you are interested in and deepen your understanding of the career potential of your chosen subject.
This BSc Economics and Business with Foundation Year will develop your core knowledge and skills in economics and business management and prepare you to successfully complete a degree in a range of business'related disciplines. The core modules deliver key, cross'disciplinary knowledge in business and economics and you can then decide, via your choice of options, whether to continue studying an interdisciplinary mix or to take a more specialist route.
Upon successful completion of the one'year Foundation Year, you will automatically progress on to our three'year, full'time evening study BSc Economics and Business. You need only complete one application and you enrol onto one programme.
