Business and Retail Management with Foundation Year - University of Surrey

At Surrey Business School, we’re renowned for our world-class research, dynamic learning environment and strong industry links. Our BSc Retail Management programme **(with Foundation Year)** was one of the first of its kind when it was introduced in 1989, and it remains at the forefront of the sector. Equipping you with a combination of specific retail industry knowledge and essential business management skills, our academically rigorous and practically relevant programmes provide you with a thorough education in the art and science of retailing. You’ll study core business and management topics as well as specialist modules that will develop your understanding of the working realities of retail management and operations. You will learn to apply and evaluate the techniques and frameworks that lie at the heart of successful retailing, while a range of optional modules will give you the opportunity to specialise in areas of particular interest to you. Study tours, guest lectures and regular visits from senior-level graduates now working in the retail industry keep our programme up-to-date, relevant and applicable to real-world business situations. We’re always looking to make it easier to access the education we offer, so we have launched the option of taking a degree with a foundation year. A foundation year is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme. It’s a great option if: • You don’t have the grades for a full degree course • You have non-traditional qualifications or experience • You’re starting university after some time away from education • You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study. During a foundation year you’ll learn about your chosen subject, develop your study skills and get used to university life. On successful completion of your foundation year, you’ll be ready to progress to the first year of your degree course. As a foundation year student, you’ll be a full student of the University and part of our community. You’ll have access to all our campus facilities and support.
