This course provides students with an opportunity to gain a good insight into business management while, at the same time, acquiring a basic though sound knowledge of important core areas of law.
The blending of business modules such as economics, finance and management theory, with areas of law that are vital for an understanding of organisations rights and obligations, such as contract law and law of employment, will provide students with a solid business education and potentially a great career in business.
Given the semi specialist nature of this course, students who undertake it will be exposed to wide areas of law such as Constitutional and Civil Liberties, Criminal Law and International Law. The law modules in this course will provide students with a well above average understanding of the implications of law for individuals and organisations alike in the national community as well as the international sphere.
Those who may wish to pursue legal studies and perhaps even enter the legal profession will have gained a very useful foundation from which to tackle the Diploma in Law (which a good pass in this course will qualify them to do).
Students starting at UCS in September 2013 will be charged £8,000 for a full-time Bachelor degree. Tuition fees for full-time undergraduate overseas fee payers for the academic year 2013-2014 are:

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.
