Our pathway courses are designed for those looking for support to meet either the language or the academic subject entry requirements for postgraduate study. They bridge any gaps in your existing skills level and give you the confidence to progress onto Newcastle Business School’s Masters provision.
The Graduate Diploma course consists of 120 credits delivered over two semesters and the Graduate Certificate course consists of 60 credits delivered over one semester. The two courses share a common core of modules; a 40 credit Business and Management in Context module and a 20 credit Developing Academic Skills for Business and Management module, designed to support your development of academic skills for future studies at postgraduate level.
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
Modules on the course are specifically designed to enhance your reflection and evaluation skills, to prepare you for entry to postgraduate study in Business and Management. Classroom-based sessions will provide an opportunity to develop discussion and reflection, teamwork, presentation, and leadership skills. You will be able to capitalise on past academic and employment experience, and become exposed to a variety of business sectors and management scenarios.
Although the course is explicitly designed as a pathway to the MSc Business suite of courses, the skills practised are transferrable and will provide a strong grounding in business, management and leadership roles. As one of our graduates you will benefit from the Business and Law Schools’ Alumni Networking Platform, and from our close ties with the regional and national business communities.
