What's the Business Management (Top up) course about?

This course aims to provide a challenging, broad business education which balances theory and practice with personal development and the development of transferable and discipline specific skills in the field of business and management. The programme provides the basis for the progressive development of intellectual knowledge and understanding with vocational skills and competences that enhance student employability and develop creative, innovative students. It promotes work experience and real world practical business engagement with challenges, innovative assessment, employer engagement and action learning. The programme embraces the changing nature of the contemporary business environment and its impact on business processes, transactions and the role the individual plays as an enterprising leader. It seeks to prepare students for the diversity and complexity which accompanies a globally integrated and internationally focused business environment.
This award seeks to develop students who have a good grasp of the functions of business and their integrated nature. It seeks to develop this and prepare students for working in fast-paced organisations where change is rapid and the thinking needs to be creative and innovative. We want students to challenge the orthodoxy and be comfortable in situations when most managers would feel uncomfortable. Theory and practice are combined at all levels, collaborative working and flexibility of approach are very important.

There are six 20 credit core modules to complete within this programme.

Academic and Professional Excellence
This module aims to support students in developing cognitive, metacognitive, interpersonal, technological, professional and academic skills to enable them to successfully engage with their studies at level 6 and to progress successfully to post-graduate study. It is designed to assist students in developing specified subject-specific and employability skills alongside the development of linguistic competence.
Implementing Strategy and Change
This module investigates the variety of strategic options available to organisations. Creating potential strategies leads to option selections, where options are evaluated to decide whether they should be acted upon. The screening of options is done on the basis of evaluating the suitability (relevance to the strategic position), acceptability (to stakeholders) and feasibility (resource implications). A critical and practical perspective to challenge the paradigms of strategic management will enable you to question whether these still have a place in today's ever-changing globalised world.
Financial Fluency for Decision Making
The aim of this module is to acquire and critically examine knowledge of core concepts that inform senior management's decision-making in the area of financial management. In addition the module aims to develop a critical understanding of regulatory, political and economic contexts which contribute to a organisations operational and strategic activities.

Leadership in Contemporary Organisations
This module explores contemporary leadership challenges facing organisations today. In addition to exploring current literature, case studies and examples of leaders, students will develop a clear view of their personal leadership preferences and aspirations. Students will complete the module with a comprehensive understanding of effective leadership styles and approaches and how they might personally lead in their future roles.
Marketing in a Global Context
This module will enable students to learn to help companies build powerful, integrated go-to-market systems. We think of an effective go-to-market system as the missing link between a company’s strategy - its decisions about where to compete and how to win and the exceptional customer experiences that are the ultimate path to success. Such a system enables a company to identify attractive target customers and design value propositions tailored to those customers’ needs and to the company’s strengths. It also enables the company to deliver these offerings to the marketplace and to continually refine them.
Managing the Digital Enterprise
The digital landscape has changed the way business is conducted and impacts all sectors. These changes affect not only the individual company and their products or services, but entire industries leading to the development of new and diverse business models. All organisations need strategies and actions to develop and sustain a digital business. The module integrates theory and practice and considers key issues including the growth of the mobile digital platform and the rapid expansion in digital traffic.

There are two assessments for each module. The assessments are submitted throughout the year at set times. A range of assessment methods are used and could be in the form of the following examples:
Individual reports
Group and individual presentations
Group and individual projects
Portfolios
Business plans
Examinations
Problem solving exercises
Case studies
Consultancy projects

What's the Musical Theatre course about?

This programme has been designed to prepare students for work in contemporary musical theatre and its related industries. Students are offered many opportunities, to explore, develop and refine the skills necessary for a potential career in performance, including television, film, session work and cabaret.

Students are offered a selection of opportunities to individually explore the mechanics of each of the three key musical theatre disciplines (singing, acting and dance) and, as part of an ongoing creative process, their respective combinations.

All the creative work is underpinned by the systems of physical action as laid out by Stanislavski and developed by Uta Hagen and in this sense the course aims to produce actors who can sing and dance. The diversity and challenges of each year allow students to explore the full potential of their abilities within a creative and stimulating environment.

Students are assessed through a combination of practical work (80%) and written assessment (20%) - the course culminates in a 5000 word extended essay.

What will I be able to do after I've completed this course?

This programme trains actors for the professional theatre and its allied industries and also provides excellent opportunities for students to progress to postgraduate studies.

What qualifications or experience do I need to do this course?

Applicants must have two A levels at grade C or above and a third qualification or a BTEC Level 3 National Diploma/Extended Diploma with Merit, Merit, Merit or a BTEC Level 3 National Certificate/Extended Certificate with Distinction, Distinction in a performing arts related subject area, or an equivalent level 3 qualification with appropriate content. Minimum UCAS tariff points required: 240. The college invites students who meet the criteria to audition, which will then determine entry to the programme. Students with music theory Grade 5 will be at an advantage.

Where the student is a mature applicant, the college may choose to reduce the required UCAS tariff points if the applicant can demonstrate appropriate experience of their chosen specialism. However, this will be subject to the agreement of the head of department.

For overseas applicants or for those for whom English is a second language, a proficiency in English, both written and spoken, is essential. The college requires such students to demonstrate an IELTS score of 6.0. Entry to this pathway at levels 2 and 3 can only happen in exceptional circumstances, and given its intensive actor training, this programme is not a standard top-up route for foundation degree graduates.
