Course Overview

Even if you don't have the academic assurance or qualifications to enrol in a typical undergraduate degree, this course will provide you with the knowledge and abilities you need to thrive in higher education. If you need a little additional assistance as you begin your journey, the foundation year is the ideal option because it provides study skills and direction at every stage.

When you pursue your degree in supply chain management with us, you can expect to learn from professors who have held senior positions at organizations like Apple, Amazon, Cargolux, Hilton Hotels, Jaguar, McDonalds, Musgrave, Phillips, and Tesco. The team behind this course has also played a key role in supply chain policy and business development with the European Commission and the British Government. We are able to present you with actual business problems during your degree because of our significant industry connections, including with member organizations of the UK's NOVUS Trust network.

This will enable you to gain a complete and in-depth understanding of the sector and the difficulties you'll encounter in the real world during your future career. The course adopts a methodical approach, and each module builds on the knowledge learned in the one before it. Additionally, the interconnected content will help you develop new abilities in a logical order.
