Learning and assessment

Project work is integral to the programme’s learning design, and also to assessment - particularly in the ‘real world’ business projects in Stage 2 and Stage 3. To facilitate learning, lectures and seminars will often utilise case studies and simulations.

Learning is assessed by a mixture of assessed coursework, group projects, multimedia presentations and written examinations. Sessions may be delivered weekly or in blocks.

Assessments are designed to test knowledge of the discipline and understanding of its application and limitations.

Significant emphasis is placed on the formative feedback and assessment and will take place throughout core modules in Stage 1 and 2, particularly in the Entrepreneurial Mindset module where a formative assignment will be towards the end of Stage 1.

Study support

The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the Faculty of Management and Law, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (eg assignments and examinations) as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.

The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.


You'll be engaged in research throughout the programme, completing modules aimed at developing critical skills in research and applied research.

The Team-Based Company Projects module is integrated with an Applied Business Research module introducing students to the methods, tools and techniques of business research and project management relevant to entrepreneurship. This research experience equips you with the research skills to design, define, scope and plan your final Enterprise in Practice Project.

On graduation from this programme, you will be able to apply your new research-based knowledge and skills in a wide range of business and entrepreneurial environments.
