At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum and professional work placements included in all our undergraduate programmes.

The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility.  To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities.  This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development.  Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.  
The learning and teaching on this course is delivered through a range of student-centred approaches which involves problem-based learning, plenty of group work and case study applications. The international work environment demands strong team working ability and collaboration and the everyday learning experience on this course steadily builds up students' confidence and skills. We make extensive use of Moodle, Leeds Trinity's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), to support class sessions, and of e-resources to enable 24/7 access to learning materials both on and off campus.

Many of the modules will focus on specific countries and regions as part of their exploration of international business subjects.  Students will be expected to show an interest in exploring business practice and culture across varied parts of the world and draw widely on this in their assignments. Each year there are range of nationalities present in the student group as well as the lecturing staff and this is a rich source of information and cultural awareness that becomes integral to the course.

All students undertake two Professional Development and Placement modules, which feature work placements in the summer term of both first and second year. Students are fully prepared for these placements through professional development and coaching and their assignment them to reflect on their experience and how they have furthered their career goals. Such placements are the backbone of our degree programme and allow students to develop their own network of contacts as well as providing crucial job opportunities.

There are opportunities to study abroad with our partner universities in places such as Spain, France, Turkey, USA, Germany and Australia. This experience is especially encouraged in the second year of your degree when the course is designed to cover all core material in the first semester leaving you free to study your university credits elsewhere in the world. There is Erasmus funding available to assist you with your costs while abroad and often the study programme is delivered through English.

In the final year, students conduct a research project or professional learning through work project in which they explore in greater depth a topic of personal academic interest. Furthermore, across all modules in the final year greater student choice is built into the programme allowing you to develop your own area or region of expertise.


A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed.  There is some scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.

In addition to each of your module assessments you will take a programme level assessment in each of the first and second year of your programme. This is designed to assess your understanding of everything you have been taught and to help you to understand how different elements of your degree fit together to make a coherent programme. 
You will be given weekly directed activities to complete in each module. These will contribute marks towards the final module assessment and reward engagement with the content of the module. They will also help you to check your understanding of what has been taught. Some of these activities may include further reading or preparation tasks for seminars. Some of the tasks will be completed online and may include quizzes which provide you with instant feedback on your understanding of the module content. In some modules lecturers may place some of the taught content on videos which you may be required to watch prior to attending a class. This will free up time for you to work on meaningful projects in class. 

On this programme there are some assessments which are marked on a pass/fail basis rather than graded. Please note that these assessments are excluded from the calculations made to produce the figures published in the Key Information Set (KIS) for this programme/subject.

Typically, our entry offer for this degree course is 112 UCAS tariff points.

Other requirements: For the old GCSE system we require grade C or above and for the new GCSE grading system we will accept grade 4 or higher in both English Language and Maths.​

We welcome students with a wide range of qualifications such as A Levels, BTECs and accredited Access courses.  We treat every application on its own merits; we value highly the experience you illustrate in your personal statement.

We accept a variety of international equivalent qualifications and Leeds Trinity interviews international candidates before a final decision is made. Typically, this is a call at a mutually convenient time.
