It's not all about passing exams.
Our courses are about gathering skills for the working world. From playwork to popular music the world is your oyster.
Select the courses you are interested in to see a course description that includes a link to a detailed course structure called a course map.
Our courses are made up of individual study units, called modules and subject areas are organised into fields. Some modules are compulsory, but you can usually choose modules outside your field which you are interested in.
You usually have to take 26 modules for an honours degree, ten in level one, and eight in levels two and three. Level three includes a dissertation or project module.
The main courses are Honours Degrees, Foundation Degrees and Higher National Diplomas (HND).
Students can focus on one field for a Single Honours Degree, or two for a Joint Honours Degree. We offer Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (BSc), Bachelor of Education (BEd) and Bachelor of Law (LLB) Degrees.
A full-time Honours degree takes three years, and four with a work placement or sandwich year. In some fields you are required to take a placement, in others it’s optional. Full-time study means around 10 to 15 hours in class each week, and many courses can be done part-time.
Designed to meet workplace needs, it combines academic study with advanced personal, professional and employability skills. Students who successfully complete a Foundation Degree may progress to Level 2 or Level 3 of one of the University’s Degree programmes. Find out more at www.foundationdegree.org.uk.
The HND is designed to develop skills and knowledge relevant to industry and commerce. It is highly regarded by employers and requires full-time study over two years, or three if an industrial placement is included. You can also take an HND part-time.
It’s not all about exams. We assess your work during your time here through essays, examinations, project work, group presentations, and field and laboratory reports.
