More about this course
The foundation year on our four-year airline, airport and aviation management course has been designed to allow you to acquire vital business skills and build your confidence as you start your degree.
It will focus on the general principles of business and help you develop effective communication, research and data analysis skills. It is also designed to be an introduction to academic life, preparing you for your subsequent years of study and allowing you to get to grips with various learning styles.
In the following three years of your degree you will focus more heavily on aviation, studying the same course content and having the same choice of modules as those who study Airline, Airport and Aviation Management BSc (Hons) degree. The teaching staff are well connected within the aviation industry, allowing you to learn from experts in your field of interest.
This course shares its foundation year with a number of our other foundation year degrees, allowing you to share ideas across a wide range of business disciplines.
If, following your foundation year, you decide to specialise in a different business-related subject, there is flexibility to allow you to do this.
You will graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.
In Year 2 or 3 you’ll be required to complete a work-related learning module, as students graduating with work experience are more likely to get into a career they want. The University will advertise suitable opportunities and provide guidance on completing the application process, but we can’t guarantee you a work placement.
