LOCATION: The modules in this programme are taught at the Roehampton Lane (Southlands College) campus unless otherwise stated.

PROGRAMME OUTLINE: This is a four year programme designed specifically for international students wishing to progress from the International Foundation Certificate (IFC) to one of the three Roehampton undergraduate Business degrees listed below. Please refer to the Aims and Learning Outcomes of the IFC programme and the relevant Business degree programme:
Business Management
International Business
Human Resource Management

The degrees offer a range of programmes designed especially for international students who do not speak English as a first language. They combine one year of academic English and Business modules followed by three years specialising in Business Management, International Business, or Human Resource Management, and are particularly useful for those students who need to complete a foundation programme, or who need to improve their English. These programmes provide an excellent foundation for a range of careers in international business and management, and enable students to develop an academic basis for further study including that of business and management at graduate level and for graduate training. Students will gain a knowledge and understanding of the external and internal business environments, show an understanding of organisational decision-making, and develop problem-solving skills.
