    Assessment Methods

    Our approach to the learning, teaching and assessment of our students is tailored to the needs of marketing and so we adopt a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure not only that our students will gain the necessary knowledge and understanding of the world of marketing, but also develop their intellectual and personal skills.
    Our programme is designed to enhance the employability and professional competence of our graduates in the skills and attributes demanded by employers in a global economy and provide them with the knowledge, skills and attributes which allow them to be flexible, independent lifelong learners.
    Our assignments are designed to encourage the development and application of skills such as evaluation, analysis, and judgement within a marketing context. For example, our Level Three students undertake the E-Marketing module, where after learning the theory and practice of internet marketing, they are required to act as ‘internet marketing consultants’. They appraise the current internet marketing capabilities of a chosen organisation and make recommendations as to how online marketing could be improved.

    Teaching Methods

    Throughout the programme our students have opportunities to engage in ‘real life’ issues through live industry projects, case studies and investigations which put into practice the theories learned.
    Our students have the opportunity to undertake structured work experience, becoming involved in ‘real-time’ marketing projects for external companies and other organisations. In recent years, our students have successfully completed projects in industries as diverse as telecommunications, tourism/heritage, and whisky.
    Our lecturers have good links with senior marketing professionals, some of whom are former students, working in areas such as brand management, marketing consultancy, advertising and public relations. These contacts are regularly invited to give guest lectures and master classes.

    UK requirements for international applications

    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.
