Foundation courses

Your personalised placement year

All our business courses are four years, with the third year spent on placement or studying abroad.

Or if you have aspirations to set up your own purpose-led venture, you can spend a year focusing on that as part of our 'Year in Enterprise' scheme.

Economics students can also extend their three-year course to a four-year degree by adding a placement year.

Building this extra year into your course is a fantastic way to build your confidence and skills, solidify your career plans, and help you stand out with employers.

It’s up to you exactly how you spend your third year. You can do any of the following:

Placement and study abroad

six months on placement and six months studying abroad

You don’t have to decide anything until year two and there’s lots of help from our dedicated placement and study abroad offices.

Our flexible options are ideal for athletes

Having a flexible third year is ideal for elite athletes and seriously committed sportspeople. There are lots of opportunities available, and we will work with you to find your best option.

For instance, we can help you find a work placement in the Loughborough area so you could continue to use campus sporting facilities. Or you could take our Year in Enterprise option to get on-campus support for developing and promoting your own business, perhaps related to your sport.

Another option exclusively available to elite athletes (as approved by the Sports Development Centre) is to not add in an extra year, and move directly into your final year.
