Why study the Foundation Year in Business at Middlesex University?

The Foundation Year in Business is taught by the same lecturing staff who teach on our degree courses and you are taught in small group seminars, workshops and lectures. You will be able to develop transferable skills in business, communication and problem-solving.

What will you study on the Foundation Year in Business?

You will study four modules over the year. Each module is one year long which means you have the chance to examine topics in-depth. As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.

  • Modules

    • Understanding the Context of Business (30 credits) - Compulsory

      The aim of this module is to introduce you to the notion of business and all its domains through literature. In particular, the module develops your ability to source, read, understand and utilise business knowledge effectively.

    • SMART (Students Mastering Academic writing, Research and Technology) (30 credits) - Compulsory

      This module provides you with the fundamental written and oral communication skills required to continue studying at degree level. You will develop analytical skills through a problem solving approach, build your confidence working individually and as a member of a team, and gain appreciation of research techniques by using libraries and a range of e-learning resources.

    • Foundation Mathematics (30 credits) - Compulsory

      This module introduces some fundamental mathematical topics and concepts that are required in a range of subjects studied at degree level. In a structured and supportive environment students will begin to develop an appreciation of the importance of mathematics as an aid to understand and describe abstract ideas.

    • Foundation Project (30 credits) - Compulsory

      This module provides you with experience in a range of related subject-related projects that reinforce understanding of topics taught, and provide opportunities to apply the knowledge gained in other modules.
