There’s still time to find a place on a degree course this September

There are still vacancies on a variety of courses available through Clearing for September 2008 entry at Birmingham City University.

A variety of diverse undergraduate courses within the field of business are currently available. Both single and joint honours courses offer students the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge which are valued by employers. From gaining knowledge and understanding in areas such as accountancy, finance, management, marketing and human resources to developing personal skills in teamwork, presentation techniques and critical thinking, these degree courses also offer great opportunities for students to undertake an industrial placement year or study abroad for a semester.

Undergraduate courses in engineering are on offer to suitably qualified applicants who are seeking to study a BEng degree at an innovative and well regarded establishment. Many of our engineering degrees offered at our Faculty of Technology, Innovation and Development incorporate professional accreditation from the Institute of Engineering and Technology. We offer programmes with IET accreditation in automotive, mechanical, electronic, manufacturing systems and telecommunications and networks engineering.

A foundation year course is also available to those who may not quite meet the entry requirements to gain entry directly to the degree programme, providing an alternative route for suitable preparatory study to progress onto a degree after successful completion.

We’re still recruiting for the BSc (Hons) Health and Well-being course, a great course to consider if you’re interested in healthcare. With four specialist pathways in Health and Well-being, Exercise Science, Nutrition Science and Individuals and Communities, there are a host of career opportunities within health and social care for graduates of this course. Graduates may move onto employment within areas as varied as youth work, nutritional advice or sports therapies depending upon the pathway they have studied. There are also options for graduates to continue studying for a Graduate Diploma course in Nursing or Social Work, or training to become a teacher through a PGCE course.

Many other courses are still available if you want to start a degree this year. Search our online Clearing Database, view the full list of available courses or call the Clearing Hotline on 0121 331 6777 for details of all remaining vacancies at Birmingham City University.

New Flexible Learning Business & Management Degree

Birmingham City University is offering a new flexible learning degree programme this September.  The course will appeal to prospective students who have commitments which would prevent them from attending university on a full-time basis. The BA (Hons) Business and Management by Flexible Learning is a joint honours programme which allows students to study a large portion of the course through online learning. Short attendance blocks at the university take place throughout the year to ensure students receive tuition in a supportive environment, with students being required to attend approximately twelve Saturday Schools per year. It’s a great opportunity to study whilst working or bringing up a family and allows you to develop your potential around other important areas of your life.

Initially, the course is being offered with entry to the second stage (level 5) of the course and is open to those who have previously completed either a HNC or HND in an appropriate business-related subject or who have other suitable qualifications. Those with significant supervisory or management experience may also benefit from the programme at this level. Applications for this course are made directly to the university and you can apply online here and course information is available to dowload from here.

This is just one of a number of new courses being introduced into our evolving course portfolio this year. Further information about the full range of courses available can be found on our website at www.bcu.ac.uk/courses.
