  • Year One

    UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.

  • Year Two

  • Year Three

In this Marketing programme, we are are encouraged to research, brainstorm in teams, create proposals, and pitch to panels just like you would in a real marketing agency.
