Newman University has developed an innovative foundation year for their business degrees. The pre-degree year of this four year course, if passed, leads into the same study programme as the 3 year joint honours degree course in Business and Marketing.
The foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.
