How You Study
What You Need to Know
We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
An Introduction to Your Modules
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
How you are assessed
Entry Requirements 2023-24
This programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and upon successful completion students are awarded 'advanced standing'. This will enable students to study for CIM qualifications without needing to complete all of the modules. Students will only need to complete two assessments instead of the usual three. Students can also add an individual award to supplement their degree. Further details can be found on the CIM website.
Work Placement Year
As part of this course, students can choose to undertake a year of work placement following the second year. They are expected to source their own paid placement, and tutors can provide support during the process if required. No tuition fees will be due for this year, but students will be expected to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs. Students who successfully complete their studies with a year of work placement will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business and Marketing award.
Students who require a Tier 4 visa to study BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement) will be issued a CAS with a course length that should be sufficient for you to complete the course without the placement year. If you decide to undertake the BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement) and find a work placement as part of the course this will add additional time to your course and a new Tier 4 visa will be required either before or after the work placement to extend your stay in the UK.
