About the course

Many of our students have found studying the Foundation Course prior to the main Degree schedule extremely useful. It will help you become accustomed to the rigour of academic learning and also provides an excellent orientation course for studying at undergraduate level in Malaysia and/or London.

Irrespective of their background, students who undertake the Foundation Course tend to perform better in the main Degree programme.

Key Features

The programme integrates theoretical study and application to real world cases, in each module's teaching strategy but also in direct interaction with the University's external partnerships, including employers' organisations, professional associations, international partners and spin off entrepreneurial activities. In particular our business management graduates have analytical, research, information technology, interpersonal, cross cultural communication and empathetic skills.

The skills of managing ICT, communication to peers and external organisations, numeracy, problem solving, interacting in teams, ethical reasoning, critical appraisal, self-management and leadership have been particularly applauded. Students' progress through the programme ensures that they become increasingly self-confident and capable of managing their own learning. Graduates will have developed self-confidence and the ability to work in diverse environments and communicate to a wide variety of levels.

All subjects studied on the programme are relevant to the world of work, across specialist disciplines and sectors. The skills developed to achieve academic success are also those required by employers and for study at higher levels. The involvement of employers, visiting speakers and other organisations in the delivery of the programme gives opportunities to students to interact with external networks and see the relevance of their studies.
