The BA (Hons) Professional Studies course provides an articulated progression route to a BA honours degree for students who have successfully completed a Foundation Degree (in any subject) or those who have equivalent and appropriate experience of study at higher education levels 1 And 2.
The course provides a programme of study which is in keeping with the demands of level 3 study and which promotes and encourages personal and professional growth and the acquisition and development of key managerial and analytical skills. The programme recognises the value of work-based learning and is designed to facilitate the integration of students workplace learning with a challenging academic programme of study which enables them to become more effective, independent and proactive in their professional role.

The flexible format of delivery is specifically tailored to enable students to combine their professional and work-based commitments with their studies on the course and considerable emphasis is placed on students applying and demonstrating their learning in the workplace.
Although it is expected that students will normally be supported by an informal professional mentor in the workplace (a suitably qualified and experienced professional work-based colleague) the academic guidance and support necessary for them to complete the course and maximise the effectiveness of their work-based learning will be provided by the Course Director, supported by a team of highly qualified and experienced tutors and dissertation supervisors.
The course aims to embrace the diversity of the student cohort and seeks to maximise the learning benefits to be gained from inter-professional and inter-organisational interaction. By the time students complete the BA (Hons) Professional Studies course it is expected that they will have developed not only the study skills, organisational abilities, communication skills, research experience, learner-independence and self-reflective qualities expected of a graduate, but also the team-working, ITC and inter-personal skills and attributes which will enhance their effectiveness within the workplace and equip them to initiate strategies, manage change and respond positively to challenges in their professional lives.
Teaching will take place at the University of East Anglia on Wednesday evenings, with 9 Saturday workshops spread over the year.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
