This year the Business school are offering a Summer Residential for prospective students. For more information please click here.

Business Studies, although focusing on business organisations, draws upon many different disciplines such as economics, accountancy, sociology, psychology and geography. University Business Schools observe current organisational practices through research and theorise their implications. A key skill that many students develop through their degree is the ability to research a current business phenomena, investigating how the theories we learn work in practice and if there are any new discoveries.

During this residential you will have the opportunity to develop skills that are highly desired by employers and key to undergraduate study in a business school or any related discipline. You will be required to think critically, read academic journals, debate your findings, and take part in lectures and seminars culminating into a final research project on a topic chosen and developed by you. Even if you do not do business studies most degrees require you to conduct a research project at some point, so why not get a head start!

The programme will allow you to experience sessions delivered within a university business school providing you with research methods training and resources available and used by undergraduate students. Staff will deliver sessions on key topic areas and assist you in developing a research project that you will present as a written document, which will be judged on its completeness, originality, critical thinking and quality of research.

Please see the departmental and course pages for more information about the individual undergraduate courses.
