Specifically designed for students who may have already obtained a HND or equivalent qualification, a top up degree allows you to gain a full bachelor degree in less than year.

On the BA (Hons) Business Studies degree you will examine business strategy and organisational learning and development. You can then tailor your studies to meet your career goals by completing a research project and choosing from a selection of optional modules, which will include the specialist areas from your HND.

What you will study

During this one year ‘top up’ course you will examine core aspects of business such as business strategy and communication, whilst also getting the chance to conduct a real investigation into a business problem that allows you to apply your business acumen to a real life scenario.

You will also get the chance to tailor your studies through a choice of two further option modules. These additional options, selected from five recommended choices, will allow you to focus and specialise on a particular interest that support your career ambitions.
