Marketing With Foundation Year
The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.
In a rapidly changing world, driven by the evolving power of technology and shifts in consumer habits and business practices, marketing is critical to the success of all types of organisation, in both the private and public sectors, at both a local and global level. Using the teaching team’s extensive industry and professional connections, this course reflects this new and dynamic marketing landscape, covering everything from understanding the consumer to the latest developments in the role of digital technology in modern marketing.
Our BA (Hons) in Marketing will help give you a comprehensive understanding of the role of marketing in this changing landscape, aligned with a portfolio of practical skills about how to develop and deploy marketing as an effective business tool.
This will be underpinned by developing higher level skills in problem solving, creative thinking and collaborative working, in a manner that will encourage students to acquire a desire for life-long learning as they develop their careers.
The course will help you to develop the vital skills and knowledge you need to work in teams. This will be done by group projects and assignments, including live briefs from real clients. In addition you will have the opportunity to attend industry guest speaker lectures, and visit to major clients, research agencies and other marketing specialist organisations. Over the entire course you will have the opportunity to acquire skills in leadership and management whilst understanding how marketing operates alongside of other business disciplines at both an operational and strategic level.
On this Program, you will be exposed to, and more informed of, the different types of roles, jobs and career pathways to be found in marketing, such as brand and marketing managers, consultants, researchers and emerging areas, such as e-commerce and data analysts.
Regular contact with the academic teaching team, across the course will help support you in defining which career pathway you may choose as you progress through the Program.
Staff will use experiential teaching, blended with an understanding of both established and emerging practices and theoretical thinking to enhance your understanding and skills, as well as your ability to think critically and apply justified solutions in real world situations.
Who is this course for?
Students whose prior studies have included business, psychology, sociology, media and English can continue to explore these subject areas with a marketing focus.
It may also be of interest to mature applicants who have experience of working in a front-line customer service role, or who have run their own business, and want to formalise their practical experience with an acknowledged qualification.
