This is a 'Bridging Course' designed for students with an ordinary degree from a UK university whose aim is to allow you to attain the Business and Management skills required for Master’s level study at the University of Bedfordshire.

It offers you the opportunity to engage in some academic research and apply business and management theories, concepts and frameworks through case studies which build on the knowledge and skills gained within a first degree.

The key aim is to introduce you to the research process in general terms and through a mixture of direct academic input, discussions amongst peers and self-directed learning to develop higher order knowledge and skills in business and management.
