Studying Business will give you a wider understanding of how businesses operate, helping you to unlock your potential and giving you a solid foundation from which to enter the competitive and fast-paced world of business.

You can look forward to learning about the main components of a business, from the finance, marketing and sales departments, through to customer service and human resources.

Our Broadstairs campus has its own onsite hotel, The Yarrow, which provides an excellent business model for our students to observe and study first-hand. Work experience is a key element of this course and you will be encouraged and helped to find suitable placements.

You will gain the relevant skills in essay writing, research and exam preparation that will equip you to progress to higher education.
