The Foundation Study Framework offers a new and exciting route into studying for a degree, attracting ambitious and driven students who are willing to learn and advance. If you have non-standard qualifications or do not quite meet the admissions requirements for BA (Hons) Business Studies, we can offer you a fantastic opportunity to study a four year BA Business Studies course which includes a Foundation Study Framework. The Foundation Study Framework will help you develop the theoretical/practical and academic skills you need, in order to successfully progress to the full award. The Foundation Study Framework provides a practical and group-based approach to learning that supports your development and your transition to Higher Education, whilst introducing you to key ideas and skills used within Business Studies. We are also committed to engaging you with specialist Business Studies modules from the outset, whilst extending support into your second year of study (Stage One). - Based on the evidence available, the TEF Panel judged that the University of Northampton delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students.
