Programme description

Our BSc Business with Law is designed for students who aim for a career in business and management but have an interest in law and wish to have thorough understanding of how it functions in the modern business world. It is essential that people who wish to work in the business world have an understanding of how the law works and affects their business. This joint honours degree programme will give students a solid foundation of business and law, and there will be a mix of core business and law modules from both Schools.  The programme aims to provide students an opportunity to study business and law subjects, which would help them to develop a multidisciplinary understanding of the business world, and how today’s business & commerce operate.

*The range of modules available may vary from year to year 


The BSc in Business with Law is a three-year degree, taught within the College’s modular system. You are expected to take eight modules in each year, each of which is normally assessed by a combination of coursework and/or an examination in May or June. You will therefore normally have taken 24 modules in completing your degree. The modular system allows much more flexibility than the traditional system. Subject to meeting a module’s prerequisites, you may in principle choose from modules taught in the School of Business and Management and the School of Law, as well as those from all other Schools and Departments in the College (except the School of Medicine and Dentistry). You will need to make sure, however, that your choice of modules is consistent with the structure of the Business with Law degree, and modules taken outside the School should be complementary to your main studies. Your personal academic adviser will guide you through this process and approve your module choices.
