This programme provided a great foundation, giving me the skills I needed for studying at university and helping me step by step with the process of choosing the right university.

 

-- Sammy from Canada

is currently studying at Reading University

As an international student my biggest concern was the language barrier. Whenever I asked a question, the teacher always answered patiently, which really increased my confidence. And when I made my applications to universities, my mentor always coordinated everything smoothly and swiftly.

 

-- Lijia from China

is currently enrolled at the University of Birmingham

I thought the first year in Britain would be a very difficult time, but the school days were fantastic for me. My teachers answered all my questions, gave advice and helped me with college applications. I also met friends from different countries on campus. Dormitories and schools are conveniently located in the same building so I didn’t have to worry about traffic jams. Overall, my English level has been greatly improved during the school year and I have been more integrated into life in the UK.

Our Business Management Foundation Programme focuses on improving academic and language skills as well as basic statistical concepts, which are important for most undergraduate level courses related to business.

Business Studies

The course begins by introducing you to the ways business organisations of all types function. It examines the global environment in which businesses operate and how they can respond to external factors. The principal aim of the course is to prepare you for degree courses in Business and Management-related programmes, and as such, you will be encouraged to apply theories to practical situations. Your coursework allows you to trace the different stages of starting a business and navigate the internal and external challenges which businesses encounter.

Accounting

You'll learn the basic concepts of financial and managerial accounting as a valuable way of understanding how businesses work in general. The Accounting module gives you an introduction to basic accounting principles and helps you to apply these principles in different situations.

Economics

The third module, Economics, combines a study of micro and macro content in exploring a range of economic issues drawn from national and international contexts. It promotes an understanding of economic concepts and theories through a critical consideration of current economic problems and challenges that affect everyday life.

Hands-On Project

The final portion of the course ends with a project that consolidates your learning and further prepares you for undergraduate studies. You will have up to an additional six weeks to write up your project after the completion of the course.
