What our students say...

“I worked in various positions over the last 25 years and due to unforeseen circumstances I found myself out of work. Upon reviewing various positions in the employment sector I noted that a lot of companies required a formal qualification, so I made a decision to return to education and acquire a degree. The modules covered include Marketing, Human Resources, European Studies, Maths and Accountancy, Sustainable Business to name a few. Group work is a must in the majority of the modules which is great for working together as a team.I find the lecturers very approachable and they will guide you in the right direction on any matter. They ask you challenging questions to ensure you get
a better understanding of the matter you have asked of them”
