The content of the course mirrors the Sunderland-based equivalent course, with the same ethos, materials and approach. So you can gain the benefits of an education from our University without having to move to Sunderland.
The initial two years of the course cover the essentials of business and there are also options that include: Business Enterprise Management; Managing Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity.
In the final year you will undertake specialist modules in entrepreneurship, innovation and management consulting. Throughout the course there are modules that are specifically aimed at the softer skills of employability.
We encourage our students to undertake a year-long placement between the second and final years although its not compulsory. Its a great opportunity to put your learning into practice and to extend your experience.
At the end of the course youll graduate as a manager with not only a broad business education but also specific skills and knowledge in driving enterprises forward. The coursefosters risk management, creativity, and the ability to make things happen.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
