Courses based on business needs

From Economics to English Literature, every one of our courses is designed to boost the skills employers are looking for – even if you don't realise it. That's because each school works closely with experienced business people to plan its teaching programme. For example, in our Business School, all students study modules in employability and entrepreneurship, helping our students stay one step ahead in the job market, and employers in get the highly skilled graduates they are looking for.
