START YOUR APPLICATION TODAY
The International Year One programme is equivalent to studying Year 1 of a UK undergraduate degree, and you will be awarded a Certificate of Higher Education on satisfactory completion. It is a quality-assured pathway to degrees in business, accounting and economics-related subjects.
As well as full access to all the university facilities you'll benefit from:
You’ll receive support from your tutor on personal and academic issues, including advice on your studies. The International Liaison Office will help with your application to the University of Exeter and arrange visits to your academic college, so that you can learn more about your chosen degree programme.
The International Year One is suitable for international students who have completed A-levels or equivalent, or who are already in the first year of a relevant undergraduate degree in their home country, but do not meet the academic or English language requirements for direct entry to the University of Exeter.
You will study the following modules:
This module is designed to: introduce management and organisational concepts and related theories; examine the formulation and implementation of business strategy; and explain the main management issues in marketing, human resources and operations.
This module provides an essential body of economic theory, which will provide both the basis for further study and equip you with a real understanding of the role of economics in business, public and private decision making.
This module is an introduction to the complementary concepts of financial accounting and management accounting for non-accountants. It will cover the principles of interpreting published financial information and methods for using accounting as an important tool for decision making.
The module provides an introduction to the marketing mix, marketing management and the role of marketing in a sustainable global society. It will help you understand how organisations use data for marketing purposes and what this means for advertising, the supply chain and budgets.
In this module you will have training on a variety of different statistical techniques commonly used in research conducted by psychologists through lectures, practicals and tutorials.
This module will improve your language proficiency within the context of your studies, in order to develop the ability to read complex academic texts and extract relevant information; produce written assignments in an appropriate format following academic conventions; develop fluency and confidence in seminar discussions and the delivery of presentations; enhance the ability to extract relevant information from lectures and produce a written assessment based on extensive reading and some library-based research.
Assessment is both formal and informal, designed not simply to pass or fail students but, to help you build on your successes and meet the requirements for entry to the second year of a degree. Marks from the Diploma programme do not count towards the final degree, but help the University assess your abilities in your chosen field of study.
You are assessed through a combination of examination and coursework which may include:
Satisfactory completion of A-levels or equivalent, first year of overseas university programme or equivalent.
