10 Educational Aims of the Programme
Coventry University London Campus (CULC) offers a suite of BA (Hons) undergraduate business TopUp one-year programmes. The programmes are designed with a specific focus on business in an international context and will provide students with the opportunity to draw together previous studies and experience in order to develop their knowledge, understanding, critical-thinking and problem-solving in areas required by modern international business organisations. In addition it will also enable them to improve their communication, English language, interpersonal and life-long learning skills. This programme allows entry to a degree programme at stage three (FHEQ Level 6) for students from outside the UK who have a sound general business background of study and knowledge. It will allow students to undertake more in-depth study of particular areas of business interest dependant on previous study and knowledge, and help to prepare them for a career in international business and management. In addition, students will have access to appropriate resources to enable them to enhance their ICT abilities.
