Why study this course?

During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to the basics of business, alongside improving key skills needed for success at university, including numeracy, writing and IT skills. Your existing skills will be built on by providing subject specific skills, whilst introducing you to subjects taught within the Schools of Management and Business, in order that you may more easily choose your preferred course, following successful completion of the Foundation Year. You’ll study key business themes and develop the knowledge and skills required for a successful business career or for further study. We’ll provide a framework for you to develop an understanding of businesses, their processes, and the changing environment in which they operate. You’ll also prepare for and develop a business career while enhancing your lifelong learning skills and personal development.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
