Foundation Degree (FdA) Business

KU

Validated by Kingston University, the Foundation Degree in Business is designed for part time study at College and is recognised as a full time programme as it also incorporates learning taking place at work. It corresponds with the first two years of an Honours degree with the opportunity to progress on to a third year 'top-up' to complete a full Kingston University Honours degree.  The Foundation Degree will develop your awareness and knowledge of business, both generally and with direct relevance to your own work context.  You will build upon, enhance and add to your existing business skills and develop study skills that will enable you to study successfully at university level.  Because of the emphasis on the work context, entry requirements are flexible to take account of the significance of students' prior work experience.
