Course summary

  • Study your foundation year, then progress to the full degree.
  • Develop important business, management and legal skills from the very first day.
  • Undertake applied projects and explore different ways of working.

This foundation year has been designed to enhance your knowledge of business, management and law in advance of undergraduate study.

After completing your foundation, you'll have everything you need for full honours degree study, and progress directly onto the BA Business and Management with Law course.

How you learn

The course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) Business and Management with Law course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other Sheffield Business School foundation year students, then move on to the degree.

You will learn in a supportive, challenging and exciting environment. You will be based in Sheffield Business School, a vibrant, dynamic setting with excellent facilities and located in the heart of the city.

You learn through

  • lectures and seminars
  • case studies
  • presentations
  • self-directed study
  • work placements
  • activities and events

In the foundation year, you'll study wider business topics, while specialising in your chosen subject area. You'll learn useful skills such as academic writing, work in diverse teams and learn to utilise a wide variety of data sources. In doing so, you'll fully prepare yourself for undergraduate study.

Degree preparation

After the foundation year, you will be ready to start the full degree. BA Business and Management with Law is an engaging, challenging course where you will learn to excel in your field, under expert tutelage and with fantastic opportunities for progression, networking and work placements throughout.

Live projects

Through professional work-based learning modules delivered within SHU Law, our on-campus legal firm, you will develop the ability to apply law in a real world context so as to arrive at an understanding of the role of law in practice. These opportunities will take place during the full undergraduate degree.

SHU Law operates within the award winning Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice. There, you will engage in live client work in a variety of different practice areas within the law firm such as commercial, property and litigation.  Being part of a dynamic professional legal services team, providing advice, assistance and representation at court, will give you exposure to live client-led legal practice activity. This will prepare you to work in the context of legal practice.

Networking opportunities

At degree level, networking will be encouraged through a dedicated course-focused student society where you will liaise with SHU alumni members, professional body representatives and SHU industry sector, business and legal practice networks.
