Course Introduction

Why should I study this programme?

If you have the ability but not the qualifications required to apply for our three'year BA Hons Business with Human Resource Management 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 Human Resource Management programme.

Our extended degrees are currently being restructured to ensure they meet current business demands. Please check online for revised course content.

What careers could I pursue?

Opportunities are available with a specialist personnel and human resource management focus in general management within retail, consultancy, small to medium enterprises and business start'up.
