Course Structure

The programme is designed to offer you the upmost flexibility, enabling you to customise your own pathway through the programme to specialise in particular areas of interest or align yourself more closely with a particular professional qualification.

During our specially designed induction programme you will be making informed decisions about the modules you study. In addition to a full briefing and the chance to discuss modules with academic staff you’ll have the chance to meet on a one to one basis with your personal tutor who will guide you through the process and assist you in making the best possible choices to meet your own aims. The programme itself will be delivered by experts in their related fields and is underpinned by cutting edge research into the subject area.

All modules will be delivered via a blended learning approach, mixing face to face with online activities and independent study. Whilst face to face sessions will vary in format including large and small group interactive sessions and workshops you will be expected to examine and research the material presented, question ideas and theories as well as challenging your tutors. You’ll be fully supported in engaging with these activities.

Modules will usually be assessed via a combination of examinations and coursework assignments to take account of the professional alignment of the programme and the need to develop a wide range of skills and competencies as you progress through the programme. You may be involved in writing reports, conducting presentations, developing project plans and drafting proposals.


You will have the opportunity to go on relevant trips such as visiting the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange. In the past, students have also visited established companies, such as Sadler’s Ales.

You’ll also gain valuable experience through our Employability Challenge Weeks, as well as our Leadership Challenge programme. Both give you the chance to apply your skills to innovative and exciting projects, industry talks and workshops. You’ll also receive guidance on how to complete application forms and how to write effective CVs.
