About this course

About this course

This course builds on our existing successful degrees within Business and Law and brings together the key knowledge, skills and attributes required for success across a range of graduate careers, with a focus on roles requiring knowledge of the application of law in a business context.

Taught by experienced lecturers who have worked at a high level in the business and legal professions, you’ll gain an understanding of the legal and regulatory context in which businesses operate and develop an awareness of law and legal advice within the core business functions.

You’ll study subjects critical for successful business operation, including people management, accounting and audit, as well as areas of law that relate to business management such as contract law, property and land, and torts (an important fundamental area of law). In your final year, you’ll be able to study the areas you find most interesting through a choice of business and law modules.

We place an emphasis on employability and preparing you for life after graduation.  We’ll teach you directly applicable skills for the workplace in contracts, regulation and legal principles. Professional work placements are integral to your degree and you’ll have the opportunity to conduct a business research project with an employer in your final year, so you’ll graduate with relevant work experience and valuable employer links.

This degree aims to prepare you for graduate roles within business management or the legal profession, including management consultant, human resources manager, quality assurance manager or business lawyer. You’ll also develop transferable skills, such as an ability to focus on detail and logic, that are highly valued by employers across a wide variety of industries.

Why study with us?

  • Gain knowledge and skills in contracts, regulation and legal principles that can be applied directly in the workplace.
  • Learn from experienced lecturers who have worked at a high level in business or the legal profession.
  • Develop your understanding of the legal and regulatory context in which businesses operate.

You will be able to take part in a series of workshops, events and live ‘employer challenges’ to boost your confidence and prepare you for your placement.

During your placement, you will have an opportunity to gain degree-relevant work experience, build your knowledge of career sectors and secure valuable employer references and industry contacts. This experience will help you to shape your career decisions and find the right path for you.

Learning and Teaching

Learning and Teaching

At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and provide you with the tools and support to help you achieve your academic, personal and professional potential.

Our Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy delivers excellence by providing the framework for:

  • high quality teaching
  • an engaging and inclusive approach to learning, assessment and achievement
  • a clear structure through which you progress in your academic studies, your personal development and towards professional-level employment or further study.

We have a strong reputation for developing student employability, supporting your development towards graduate employment, with relevant skills embedded throughout your programme of study.

We endeavour to develop curiosity, confidence, courage, ambition and aspiration in all students through the key themes in our Learning and Teaching Strategy:

  • Student Involvement and Engagement
  • Inclusion
  • Integrated Programme and Assessment Experience
  • Digital Literacy and Skills
  • Employability and Enterprise

To help you achieve your potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and real-world activities. This approach ensures that you fully engage in shaping your own learning, developing your critical thinking and reflective skills so that you can identify your own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape your own development.

We believe the secret to great learning and teaching is simple: it is about creating an inclusive learning experience that allows all students to thrive through:

  • Personalised support
  • Expert lecturers
  • Strong connections with employers
  • An international outlook
  • Understanding how to use tools and technology to support learning and development

Programme delivery

Your time on campus, learning through in-person teaching, is at the heart of your academic experience and the way we deliver our programmes. This is supported and further enhanced by additional engagement activities and opportunities provided online and through digital teaching materials. This blended approach seeks to ensure a positive learning and teaching student experience.

Your programme of study has been carefully designed around a three-phase model of delivery:

  1. Preparation: You will be given clear tasks to support you in preparing for live teaching. This could include watching a short-pre-recorded lecture, reading a paper or text chapter or preparing other material for use in class.
  2.  Live: All your live teaching will be designed around active learning, providing you with valuable opportunities to build on preparation tasks, interact with staff and peers, and surface any misunderstandings.
  3. Post: Follow-up activities will include opportunities for you to check understanding, for staff to receive feedback from you and your peers to inform subsequent sessions, and for you to apply learning to new situations or context.

Preparation, Live and Post teaching and learning and the digital materials used will vary by course, but will be designed to help you structure your learning, take a full and active part in your course, and apply and test your developing knowledge and skills.

Assessment

A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for your programme, allowing you to apply and demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that you have developed.
