What is a Common Entry course?

A Common Entry course is a popular choice for students who have an interest in a discipline but are unsure of what career path they would like to follow. Common Entry courses allow students to study a broad range of subjects initially and then choose their preferred specialist area after 2 years. The advantage of this course type is that it allows students more time to discover the subjects in which they are most interested.

Course Structure

Bachelor of Business (Honours) and Bachelor of Business courses equip students with a broad business skill-base, ensuring graduates will have a wide range of career options. The first two years of this course provide students with a foundation in business, and subjects are common for all students. This allows students time to explore the future career choices open to graduates in the different specialism streams. Expert guidance will be available from lecturing staff and ultimate choices can then be considered in light of academic performance across a range of business subject areas.
