This course also has the option of a one year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further. And throughout the degree you will have access to employability events, guest speakers from the business world, and access to mentoring and careers support.

What is 'Blended' learning?

Blended learning simply means using different methods to deliver your learning - in our case that's online learning with some face-to-face interactions.

When you study one of our blended programmes, you'll be a fully registered student of the University of Roehampton and benefit from our range of services – though you may access them in a different way to students on campus.
