How will I be taught and assessed?

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work, and tutorials. To facilitate the essential learning that needs to take place outside of formal contact sessions, there will be directed learning tasks during every module.

Careers and further study

By the end of this course, you’ll be in an excellent position to apply for graduate training schemes and graduate roles or to start your own business. Employers value entrepreneurial skills and are keen to hire graduates with entrepreneurial acumen, particularly for roles in consultancy, sales, and marketing.
