Top Foundation Year Programs in General Studies

A Foundation Year is a preparatory program that takes about a year to complete. It is often offered to foreign students in order to help them acclimate to a new culture and language, but it is also available for students who are not quite ready for a demanding college education.

For students who are unsure of their future careers, the pursuit of programs in general studies may be of interest. General studies are broad by design, meaning that it is like a buffet of academic programs, allowing students to see what interests them.

Why choose Business?

Business is a field that is undeniably important to society. Businesses and business leaders have been key architects of the digital age and the globalised world we inhabit. The challenge of managing finite resources in a way that satisfies a network of stakeholders is perhaps greater and more exciting than ever. The ability to critically engage with businesses and the commercial world equips young people with the tools to excel in their careers and make a meaningful contribution to the progression of society. For many students, A Level Business will lay the groundwork for an exciting and lucrative career.

What is business at DLD? Part of the Faculty of Social Sciences, A Level Business at DLD College allows learners to develop a holistic understanding of organisations in various business sectors and environments, drawing on local, national and global contexts. We embrace creativity and work to inculcate a measured approach to tackling questions that ultimately lead to justified judgments that avoid the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.Learners will apply a number of analytical techniques such as break-even analysis, investment appraisal tools and ratio analysis in order to investigate business opportunities and problems. They will be equipped to determine appropriate business strategy in a range of contexts. Business Tutors at DLD aim to create an atmosphere that is dynamic in terms of its delivery of subject material, stimulating and one that nurtures an awareness of events and issues within the global commercial environment.Students on the first year of the programme will all...
