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 develop a core understanding of the theories, principles and considerations that underpin marketing and business, as well as be introduced to key industry subjects. These modules include Business Readiness, Understanding Self and Others and Principles of Marketing and Communications in a Digital Marketing.
In the second year, students will develop an understanding in specialised topics in marketing and business. Students will learn of key trends in marketing through modules such as Consumer Behaviour and Services Marketing, as well as develop business-critical skills in Managing People and Careers and Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
In the final year, students further enhance their knowledge of marketing as they are exposed to key subjects such as Branding and Global Marketing, as well as continuing their business development in Applied Corporate Strategy and Business Ethics and Responsible Management. Also in the final year, students will complete a Business and Management Dissertation, an independent and significant piece of work that will incorporate the key skills, knowledge, concepts and considerations that students developed throughout the course.
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.
