You are introduced to the principles underlying marketing, gaining an understanding of the marketing profession and to identify and develop key marketing skills.
The second year provides you with opportunities to hone your marketing management capabilities, via marketing-research projects and external marketing related competitions. During this level of study, emphasis is placed on developing a critical understanding of consumer behaviour and stakeholder needs in order to create viable marketing opportunities.
The final year is strategic in nature allowing you to further develop critical thinking skills. You consider the complexities and ethical implications of marketing, exploring the relationship between culture and marketing and marketing and society.
There are four options for the final Extended Independent Study, which provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate independent, selfdirected study whilst building confidence and marketing expertise.

Learning and teaching is a combination of lectures, interactive seminars and workshops providing students the opportunity to develop a broad range of managerial skills. These include self-organisation, team-working, effective communications, problem-identification and resolution, decision-making and self-development. Development of these skills is encouraged through the use of small group projects, case study analysis and interaction with the local business community.
The University aims to shape confident learners by enabling students to develop the skills to excel in their studies here and be transferable to further studies or the employment market. Staff and students form a community of learners who, together and independently, seek to generate and exchange knowledge. Over the duration of the course, students develop independent and critical learning, building confidence and expertise progressively through independent and collaborative research, problem solving, and analysis with the support of staff. Students take responsibility for their own learning and are encouraged to make use of the wide range of available learning resources available.
In addition to the formally scheduled contact time (i.e. lectures, seminars etc), students are encouraged to access academic support from staff within the course team, personal tutors and the wide range of services to students within the University.
Students will undertake a skills audit before being accepted on to the scheme and will only be considered for this module if they have an attendance record in year 2 of at least 80%.

The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) record collects information about what those completing university go on to do six months after graduation. The Careers Service undertakes DLHE on an annual basis through surveys and a data collection process. DLHE is designed and strictly controlled by HESA.
While DLHE provides accurate information about first destinations, the data need to be viewed with some degree of care. Six months after leaving university is often a time of much uncertainty and change for leavers; many will be unsure of their long-term career plans and may take a temporary job or time out. The destinations of graduates only six months out of university do not necessarily reflect longer term career success and are therefore a crude measure of employability. Therefore, DLHE data should be viewed as merely a 'snapshot' of one particular year's experiences at a specific point in time.
