Exeter College adds Foundation Degree in Business to its University of Exeter Partnership
Exeter College is proud to announce the addition of a Foundation Degree in Business to its Higher Education provision.
This flagship course accredited by the University of Exeter, is hoped to widen participation, by making degree level learning more accessible. Students with the necessary grades will be able to progress from a Level 3 course to this Foundation Degree, before continuing to the 1-year Top-Up Degree, also accredited by the University of Exeter.
“Our hopes are that the industry links they make while studying on the course will enable them to move directly into their chosen careers.”Erica Drew, Programme Leader for Business
The College is delighted to be strengthening its partnership with this Russell Group institution, allowing it to offer learners dual registered student status. This means students on this programme can access all the benefits of Exeter College and the University of Exeter. This allows use of the university’s library (including online resources), student union, sports facilities, clubs and guilds and careers advice.
Students on this programme will be studying in the new South West Institute of Technology Digital and Data Centre at Exeter College on Hele Road. This £10.3million building offers state-of-the-art facilities including a new lecture theatre for Higher Education learners.
Erica Drew, Programme Leader for Business said: “It is fantastic news to be able to offer this Foundation Degree in Business to our students, it is even better still to have it awarded by a university such as the University of Exeter. This offers students interested in Business a clear progression route from Level 2 through to a full degree. Our hopes are that the industry links they make while studying on the course will enable them to move directly into their chosen careers.”
The Foundation Degree in Business (FdA) is the latest programme to join the faculty of Business and IT Higher Education offer. Other programmes awarded by the University of Exeter include the BA (Ord) Business Management.
The University of Exeter is ranked 12th in the UK in The Times and The Sunday Times University Guide 2021, and is ranked 143rd in the latest (2022) Times Higher Education World University Rankings, the most influential global league table.
You can find out more about this degree and others at Exeter College at the next Open Event on Wednesday 13 October 2021, from 4-8pm.
