THE FULL STORY

Organisations of all sizes, in every industry and across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, need managers who can understand the interaction between different functional areas. Business Studies BA (Hons) is an interdisciplinary general management degree that gives you that knowledge, plus the specialised knowledge you need to shine in your chosen field.


The world is changing fast – and so is the way we think about and do business.

This course is your chance to explore the business world in the widest possible sense. We’ll give you the general knowledge you need to understand the workings of a range of organisational styles and formats. This will help you understand the interconnectedness of business functions before encouraging you to discover the area of study you want to specialise in, choosing from:

  • Finance.
  • Economics.
  • Marketing.
  • Sport.
  • International Business Management.
  • Digital Media.

Because we work in partnership with leading brands, we understand the latest challenges and opportunities facing industry. We want to pass that knowledge on to you — and encourage you to bring your own ideas and experience into your course of study.

With digital technology playing a greater role in how we operate professionally and personally, you’ll learn cutting-edge digital skills so you have the technological capability you need to succeed in business in the 21st century.



What’s more, we will empower you to interrogate the big questions that businesses face, like:

  • The growing dominance of digital platforms.
  • The shrinking of industrial corporations.
  • Changes to energy production.
  • Building trust in the financial and regulatory systems.

Whichever subject you choose to study further, you’ll combine classroom learning with hands-on, practical placements. You’ll graduate with proven skills, and perhaps most valuable, having completed a personal development journey that aims to put you ahead of the graduate competition.

FEES AND FINANCE

University is a big investment and it’s important to consider how you’ll manage your finances.

We’ve answered some of the questions you might have, to prepare you with all the information before taking the next step.


What do I need to pay for? 
If you decide to study away from home, your three biggest outgoings will be tuition fees, accommodation and living costs. 


How much are tuition fees? 

The cost for UK undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2019 entry is £9,000 per academic year. 

Most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this, paid directly to the institution.


How do I apply for a student loan? 
You can apply online from Student Finance England, www.gov.uk/student-finance. Applying is not dependent on an offer, so you can get a headstart on the process.


When do I pay this back? 
Not straight away. You won’t actually start paying the loan back until you’re working and earning over £21,000 - how much you pay depends on your salary. 


Is there a loan for accommodation and living costs? 
Yes – eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan, again through Student Finance England, up to £8,430 a year to help with the costs of living. Repayment of this works in the same way as your tuition fees – they actually combine together into one sum. 


I’m an international student, how much are my fees? 
Fees for international students will be available soon on our website. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent, upfront before your course begins. 


Can I get advice or support during my time at UA92? 
Absolutely, we will have a Support Team on campus to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure you manage your money whilst studying with us. In addition, and as part of our Target Talent Curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life. 


Is there any other financial help available? 
There are other government grants - which you don’t have to pay back - to cover living costs for students with dependents, though these depend on your household income. There is also extra support available for students with a disability. All information can be found at www.gov.uk/student-finance
