The Diploma is a full-time academic programme which is comparable to studying the first year of a University of Exeter degree programme. The programme is specifically designed for international students who do not meet the University’s academic and/or English language requirements for direct entry to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree.
The Diploma is suitable for international students who have studied A levels, IB, a recognised Foundation programme or an international equivalent. Successful completion of the Diploma programme (subject to achieving specified grades for progression) offers direct entry to Year 2 of a select number of undergraduate degree programmes offered by the University of Exeter Business School.
Around 80 per cent of the course is devoted to subject modules in support of students’ own academic study. You will study Accounting and Finance, Economics, Statistics and Management. Academic English language and study skills is a core subject, accounting for approximately 20 per cent of classes, and covering reading, writing, listening and speaking.
