What you will study

Alongside core modules, you will study subject-specific modules that will equip you with a foundation of knowledge for your chosen field of study.

Subject Specific Modules

The module brings together the skills and subject knowledge that students have developed during the programme and provides the experience of applying this to a project which the students will select and manage.

Students will learn about the process of developing a small-scale research project and will get the opportunity to think about the advantages and disadvantages of some of the most commonly used research tools by experimenting with them and looking at how others have used them. The project that is produced will demonstrate the application of both subject knowledge and the skills that have gained across the programme and provides students with the experience and confidence to know that they will be able to carry out this type of work later on in their undergraduate studies.

The overall aim of this module is to provide students with a basic introduction to the study of business and management by introducing them to the standard departments within a business, such as finance, marketing, and human resource management. The course covers the different types of businesses, business set-up, planning and financing of developments. The module will also explore considerations in marketing the company’s products or services, the importance of issues around work, people in organisations and how businesses respond to and manage change.

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything.
