Evening and weekend study
For our UK and EU students, we offer the study option of evenings and weekends. This study option offers exactly the same levels of student support and the ability to balance your full-time studies with your personal life. Typically, classes are timetabled for two weekday evenings and one Saturday per week.
In year 1, students will acquire a comprehensive understanding of business that covers a range of key principles, concepts and issues. These include marketing, accounting, business readiness and data analysis in business solutions, with students taught how these functions and more work together.
In the second year, students will explore the nature of entrepreneurship in detail, as well as develop an understanding of core business functions in modules such as Project Management and Operations, Logistics & Supply Chain Management. Further in year 2, students will consolidate their knowledge of theory and its application in practice.
In the final year, students will complete a significant and independent dissertation that provides them with a platform to demonstrate the skills and knowledge acquired throughout the programme. Alongside the dissertation, students will enhance their entrepreneurial and business skills in modules such as Applied Corporate Strategy and Entrepreneurship Development.
You will be taught through a range of teaching methods, including lectures and seminars, around 12 hours per week. You are also expected to engage in independent study, around 38 hours a week.
You will be assessed through coursework and exams.
To prepare for your lectures and seminars, you will have access to our online learning portal, Moodle, where you can access course information, content and your weekly reading lists.
