Overview

Teaching style

We’re a 100% online education provider, so we use a state-of-the-art virtual learning environment (VLE) to deliver our teaching, resources and assessments. Our system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials. The VLE is accessible 24/7 and allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and live Q&As.

Assessment methods

All assessments are delivered through our virtual learning environment (VLE). There is no requirement to go to external test centres; instead, you will submit written assignments through the VLE. For the few courses where exams are required, we use a virtual system that allows you to take academically rigorous exams from the comfort of your own home.

We believe you get the most out of your time spent studying when you are kept informed of your performance, and we achieve this by:

  • assessing you throughout modules rather than waiting for end of year exams
  • showing your marks in your grade book which can be viewed whenever you log onto the VLE
  • rapid turnaround on work assessed to ensure your grade book is always up to date
  • ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Support team

We also have a policy of ensuring that the work submitted by students is authentic – we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

Your future

Business skills are incredibly transferable to virtually any field. If you wish to deepen your business knowledge, you can progress onto one of our full Bachelors degrees: BA (Hons) Business and Management or BA (Hons) Business and Marketing.
