Introduction

Studying online for a business and management degree offers you the freedom to study when and where it suits you – you can learn at home, during your lunch hour or anywhere else where you have internet access.

All of our online undergraduate courses have a standard study duration which indicates the length of time it should take you to complete your studies.

It is possible to complete your studies faster than the standard course duration by doubling up on modules at certain times during your course, however minimum study durations apply.

Teaching methods and style

Unlike a traditional university environment, our online degree courses utilise a Virtual Learning Environment. The system is designed to track and manage the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials wherever you are.

This learning platform allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and you can listen to, and view, live lectures and seminars over the internet. Studying is carried out entirely online and the programme of study can fit around your work and personal commitments.

You are supported throughout your business and management course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor.

Methods of assessment

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Business and management assignments are based on real life work experience and assessed by tutors on an ongoing basis.

You will always be aware of your current provisional grade right from the start of the programme, allowing you to evaluate the success of your current study methods and clearly identify areas to improve.

We believe that this transparency gives you the information you need to make the most of your course. We achieve this by:

  • showing your marks clearly in your gradebook, which can be viewed whenever you log onto the learning platform;
  • the rapid turnaround of work assessed to ensure that your gradebook is always up to date;
  • assessing your work throughout the module rather than waiting for end of year exams;
  • ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Adviser;
  • the simplicity and transparency in the design of our assessment criteria.

We also have a policy of ensuring that work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

On successful completion of your Bachelors degree in Business and Management, you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus.
