Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

Our Airline, Airport and Aviation Management (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0) that has been designed with input from senior aviation managers.

It is the ideal start to university if you’re interested in studying airline, airport and aviation management at undergraduate level but you’re unable to meet the entry requirements or don't have the traditional qualifications required to start a standard degree.

**More about this course**

The foundation year on our four-year airline, airport and aviation management degree has been designed to allow you to acquire vital business skills and build your confidence as you start your degree.

It will focus on the general principles of business and help you develop effective communication, research and data analysis skills. It is also designed to be an introduction to academic life, preparing you for your subsequent years of study and allowing you to get to grips with various learning styles.

In the following three years of your degree you will focus more heavily on aviation, studying the same course content and having the same choice of modules as those who study our Airline, Airport and Aviation Management BSc (Hons) degree. Our teaching staff are well connected within the aviation industry, allowing you to learn from experts in your field of interest.

This course shares its foundation year with a number of our other foundation year degrees, allowing you to share ideas across a wide range of business disciplines.

If, following your foundation year, you decide that you’d like to specialise in a different business-related subject, there is flexibility to allow you to do this.

You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
