An Honours graduate will develop an understanding of a complex body of knowledge.
Through this, the graduate will have developed analytical techniques and problem-solving skills that can be applied in many types of employment and be able to evaluate, evidence, arguments and assumptions and to communicate effectively.
The assessment process is an integral part of teaching and learning and, as such, supports and complements the learning strategy, in order to ensure that the required outcomes are achieved.
The aim is to achieve learning through which knowledge is based on both understanding and application.
Both the task and the assessment criteria are clearly explained to students within the module handbook.
Assessment strategies used within the course include methods such as practice-based assignments, case studies, presentations, projects, problem-based scenarios, and negotiated learning contracts.
This course will be delivered at the University Centre where students will have access to a HE-specific study zone, including computer facilities, and social area.

The award adopts the scheme admissions policy and criteria.
This programme is predominately offered to those students who wish to continue their studies after successful completion of an HND in Business, FD in Business / Business Management or other relevant discipline.
The standard entry requirement is a Merit grade profile at HND level or Merit at FdA level from a UK institution.
In the absence of formal learning qualifications applications are welcomed from persons who can demonstrate relevant work experience, including work in a voluntary capacity.
The course structure actively supports claims for Accreditation of Certificated Learning.
Ideally part time students need to be on employment which is relevant to their field.
For those not in employment discussions will take place before being accepted on to the course to determine the relevance of previous work experience.
International qualifications will be assessed against these criteria. Speakers of other languages will need to possess an IELTS band score of 6.0 (with no-less than 5.5 in any one element) or a recognised English Level 2 qualification.
