This course offers something different. It’s a three-year course but only the first year will be full-time at Northumbria University. Throughout the second and third years you’ll be working for an organisation, and being paid a salary, while also engaging in a variety of learning activities including study blocks at the University.
The work-based learning approach means that, while other people are applying for their first jobs after university, you’ll already have two years’ experience and could be seeking promotion to the next level.
Our innovative approach of combining academic study with hands-on learning has proved very successful. 100% of our students are satisfied with the course and 100% say that it has improved their communication skills and their confidence in tackling problems and presenting themselves (Unistats 2015).
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015. We’re also undergoing a full re-accreditation process with EPAS who require some of the highest levels of relevance, rigour and internationalisation.
Many of our graduates are offered permanent roles with their host organisations. A range of regional and national employers also recruit from this degree and previous students have gone on to work for an impressive list of companies. These include Nissan, Toyota, Akzo Nobel and Greggs.
You could also undertake further study at postgraduate level with a course such as our Business Masters. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have the competitive edge of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
