BA (Hons) Management, 2012
UCLan Alumni Gavin Singleton chose to study BA (Hons) Management at UCLan after enjoying his business studies course at A Level. Now, after working for four high-profile companies and travelling the globe, Gavin works as a Sourcing Lead for Thermo Fisher Scientific, a leading global organisation in the healthcare and medical industry.
BA (Hons) Business and Management, 2017 (Currently studying a MSc in Marketing Management)
Less than 8 months after a traumatic brain injury and against medical recommendations, I applied for UCLan’s Business and Management undergraduate course via clearing (because my college grades were not something to shout home about). Starting university at 21, I had no experience in Business at all; the only experience I had was being a full-time bar manager in my local pub (still some of the best years ever).

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course 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.
