Course description

Course description

The International Year One is aimed at international (non-EU) students who have good high school graduation grades or equivalent academic study plus up to one year of further study. It includes coursework, tutorials, seminar-style classes, self-study and larger group lectures. It is modular in structure, consisting of academic modules focusing on the areas most useful to your degree, study skills and English language training.

On joining the International Year One, you will receive a conditional offer of a degree place at the University. Once you have successfully completed the International Year One and have met the required entry standards, you will proceed directly to the second year of the BA in Management Studies, the BA in Marketing or the BA in Human Resource Management.
