Student view

Ashley Wan
The reason I chose the University of Chichester is because of the location, exclusive teaching method and excellent rates of student satisfaction. I am now working as a Business Analyst for an IT company in Hong Kong. The joint Business and IT course was a huge advantage, as business cannot survive without Technology and IT cannot survive without business concepts.

Course content

We believe a hands-on, interactive and participative workshop approach to learning with modest group sizes is the most effective way to develop the types of skills that employers look for in graduates.

Each module you’ll undertake is usually supported by a weekly tutor-facilitated workshop of approximately 2.5-3 hours.

Group sizes are typically 20-25 students. At the end of the workshop, you’ll normally be tasked to undertake intersession work that then feeds into the next workshop.

Our approach encourages you to be proactive and offers an environment that’s well suited to enabling you as a student to share your thinking and explore different ideas. If you choose to study with us, you’ll find our team approachable, encouraging and accessible.

Our facilities

Like all business related degree students, you will be studying on our Bognor Regis campus. Your classroom time will be spent in up to date seminar rooms with touch screen electronic white boards and high speed wifi, housed in what was a terrace of three elegant Georgian mansions – a building now known as ‘The Dome’. Our current students love the learning environment, the camaraderie, and the fact that tutors know them by name so they are more than just a face in the crowd.

For studying outside of classroom meetings we have a brand new library housing the latest books, journals and online resources, an IT centre, and a student zone complete with barrista coffee and snacks. There is a small a gym on campus, and halls of residence with wifi facilities. The Dome, library, residences and Students’ Union building are all located on a beautifully maintained, green and leafy, level campus. If that’s not quite enough to stimulate your intellect, we are just a short level walk from the beach and, for the more energetic, within cycling distance of the South Downs National Park – brilliant for creativity and inspiration.

Further Students’ Union and sports facilities are available at our Chichester campus and there is a regular subsidised bus service between the two campuses.

Where this can take you

The prosperity of business relies on the innovation and creativity of its employees. This programme will give you the skills and experience necessary to flourish in a challenging business environment.

Over the course of your degree studies, you’ll encounter a range of practice-based topics across a full range of business and management disciplines. A business studies graduate might typically expect to work within a commercial environment, but the skills you’ll develop through the degree will be equally applicable to employment within the public and not-for-profit sectors of the economy. Students might also find that they are able to start their own business using their knowledge of business and finance in todays market place.

Teaching and assessment

Our approach to supporting your learning, and how your learning is assessed, is designed to enable you to become a confident and enterprising graduate.  It is focused on seeking to support your ambitions, in parallel with ensuring that the needs of employers are met.  With this in mind, key features of our approach to learning and assessment include the following:

  • In place of the more traditional large group lecture method to teaching undergraduate students adopted by most University Business Schools, our approach involves tutors working with relatively small numbers of students at a time.  As well as providing an excellent environment for supporting you in the development of your subject expertise, it also helps you to develop a wide range of soft skills, such as teamwork, communication and time management.  These attributes are highly valued by graduate employers. 
  • Opportunities to work with organisations on current commercial/business problems and projects.  These experiences are used to provide the basis for assessments that enable you to apply your learning within authentic commercial situations.
