Course programme

Length

This is a four-year, full time programme, including 1 year study period abroad.

Additional information

The design of the programme enables you to develop a full knowledge and understanding of business and management, to acquire the relevant language and cultural skills, to choose subject areas of interest from a wide range of options, to take advantage of studying and working in more than one ‘foreign’ country and to experience the real world through work placements.

Language study

You will be able to choose one core target language from Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. Languages are taught with a marked focus on professional communication skills, which prepares you to succeed in your SPA and beyond.

You can either study a language as complete beginner or choose a language that you already speak and be accepted up to an intermediate level of competence in the language. You must not have an A-level equivalent award issued by the country of the target language (e.g. a student cannot take French if they have a French Baccalauréat). The level will be ascertained in a diagnostic test on enrolment.

You can also choose to study a second foreign language as an elective.

Study Period Abroad (SPA)

You will study abroad in Term 5 and 6*, spending time in one (or two) countries to gain life-changing international experience. Your target language choice will determine which partner institution/s is/are available for you. You may replace one of your SPA terms in an English speaking country, e.g. USA or Australia, subject to the competency of target language and the approval of SPA Academic Advisor. At least one of your SPA terms must be in the target language of your degree.

We have partnerships with over a hundred around the world. This provides students with the opportunity to strengthen intercultural understanding, gain exposure to a more varied selection of academic modes, as well as significantly driving up their language skills. The University’s International Partnerships Office will support you before, during and after your SPA.

Fees for the Study Period Abroad Year is 50% of annual tuition fee. See the admissions tab for further details on fees and scholarships

Placement Learning Project (PLP)

This is an optional replacement for the second SPA in Term 6. The Placement Learning Project is a 4 to 5 month (16 week minimum) module which aims to formally and academically utilise the student’s theoretical business knowledge in a real-life industry environment. The module is formed of these three elements:

• a 16 week placement in an internship setting

• a formal and concurrent structure of academic submissions

• a supervisory tutor/student relationship

Work Placements/Internships

Work placements are an integral part of the programme and you are required to undertake two 8-week blocks of work placements before the final year of study, in order to gain valuable industry experience, and also to provide a source of reflection and investigation for your final-year capstone module – Applied Business Project.

The work placements provide practical enrichment of your learning, allowing you to test your knowledge in a variety of real-world business and cultural settings. Such experience is highly valued by potential employers and will significantly enhance your career prospects and employability after graduation.

The University’s Careers & Business Relations team will support you throughout your placement.

You may eligible to replace your second SPA in Term 6 with a Placement Learning Project (PLP). The PLP requires the student to undertake a 16-week Internship and conduct and academic analysis/investigation of certain aspects of the placement and our role. Various academic submissions are demanded, culminating in the submission of a major report.
