Course description

Foundation Degree in Management and Business

Foundation degrees are the first two years of an honours degree programme, but they are also a qualification in their own right. Our Foundation Degree in Management & Business is quality assured by the University of Chichester and you will receive a Chichester Award on successful completion. Students studying a Foundation Degree can apply to do a "top-up" year to obtain a full BA (Hons) degree in Management & Business . This course is also available at AHED.

The Foundation Degree in Management and Business is specifically designed to cater for the needs of employees working in a management or supervisory role or those aspiring to such a role. It aims to equip students to understand the nature of organisations and the way in which they work, the roles they are called upon to play, and how they might enhance their own performance in pursuit of chosen careers.

Suitability - Who should attend?

  • All eligible applicants will be required to undertake an interview.
  • Under 21s require 2 A levels (64 UCAS points) or the equivalent.
  • Mature students (Over 21s) require either a Level 3 qualification in Business Administration and/or Management, 2 A levels (64 UCAS points) or equivalent; or based on interview and significant relevant work experience.
  • Mature students without traditional qualifications may also be accepted following recognition of prior experiential learning (RPEL) providing they can show appropriate levels of relevant ability and experience.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

This programme aims to provide students with a firm grounding in the principles of management; enable students to study the nature of organisations, their internal aspects, functions, processes and cultures through exploring their own experience at work; develop self-aware, reflective managers; develop management awareness and skills in practice, for example: leadership, initiative and decision making, alongside an ability to manage change; provide a learning environment that supports student development through active engagement with peers.

The programme allows students to develop knowledge and understanding of how their decisions will impact on an organisations’ objectives and students will gain knowledge of how organisations can be run in an efficient and cost effective manner whilst maintaining customer satisfaction and staff morale.

The programme aims to set work within an academic context and consequently the Foundation Degree offers a mix of academic and vocational/professional study that encourages students to develop within their work environment and to be reflective, lifelong learners. The majority of assignments and the majority of the module taught content is related to an individual’s own workplace.
