Student support

We pride ourselves on the level of support we offer our students.

This includes:

  • careers advice and guidance
  • personal tutors
  • volunteering and community engagement opportunities
  • skills coaching in leadership, negotiating and cultural awareness 
  • unique access to a support network of entrepreneurs, business start-up facilities and experts to help establish your own business

Professional development

First year undergraduates benefit from academic and professional development support at the Business School. This helps students make the transition from A-level to university study. Advice is available on matters such as essay writing. You will develop key skills that will benefit you later in life such as leadership, negotiation and cultural awareness training. 

More information

Our extracurricular activities allow you to put into practice what you learn on your course.

  • Students have recently had the opportunity to carry out design projects for Coca-Cola for example
  • Other students put their entrepreneurial flair to the test in a project for Royal Bank of Scotland where internships were offered as prizes


Community engagement

You can get involved in projects that make a real difference to the lives of people in local communities and abroad.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students from any year of study take part in a range of volunteering activities as part of this programme.

Overseas students who study at the Business School visit primary schools and care homes to talk to children and citizens about their country’s culture

Students who take part in these culture sharing programmes benefit from meeting and getting to know students on other courses, increased levels of confidence, and the satisfaction of making a difference in the community
