Foundation in Business

Students who do not have 'A' Level or equivalent qualifications for direct entry to a Bachelor's Degree Programme are required to complete a 3 Semester Degree Foundation Course (DF) prior to commencing BA (Hons) Business Studies Course.

After finishing the Foundation Course, you can transfer directly to the main Degree course.

Students can expect to complete the entire degree foundation and degree in approximately 4 years.

Many of our students have found studying the Foundation Course prior to the main Degree schedule extremely useful. It will help you become accustomed to the rigour of academic learning and also provides an excellent orientation course for studying at undergraduate level in Malaysia and/or London.

Irrespective of their background, students who undertake the Foundation Course tend to perform better in the main Degree programme.

The Degree Foundation Programme is designed to prepare and provide a foundation in Business Studies. Students who complete the Degree Foundation in Malaysia qualify for the entry into the first year of BA (Hons) Business Studies Degree, run in association with Cardiff Metropolitan University.
