  7. 7. This Programme Specification covers the main suite of degree programmes offered in Applied Business Management including a year in industry. It has been designed to contrast the individual programmes and highlight the opportunities offered by each of them. The programmes are offered on a full-time basis. Students normally complete their programme in three years (or four if it includes a year in industry) Study on the programmes is divided into a number of blocks called modules. Single-weighted modules carry 15 credits and double- weighted modules 30 credits. One credit corresponds to approximately 10 hours of “learning time”. This includes all taught and supervised classes and all private study and research. Examinations, where used, take place during the summer term. The programme is divided into three stages (four, where a year abroad or in industry is included) each comprising of 120 credits and students must achieve specified requirements before being permitted to proceed to the next stage. Each stage represents an academic year of study and each year of study involves approximately 1200 hours of learning time. Each module is designated at one of three ascending levels, Certificate (C), Intermediate (I) or Honours (H). To be eligible for the award of an honours degree students normally have to obtain 360 credits (or 480 where a year of study abroad or in industry is included), at least 210 of which must be Level I or above, and at least 90 of which must be level H or above. Students successfully completing Stage 1 of the programme, and meeting credit framework requirements who do not successfully complete Stage 2 will be eligible for a Certificate, provided they obtain 120 credits in the taught elements of the course. Students successfully completing Stage 1 and 2 of the programme and meeting credit framework requirements who do not successfully complete Stage 3 will be eligible for a Diploma, provided they obtain 240 credits in the taught elements of the course. Module mapping of programme outcomes, for all awards, is presented at the end of this specification. At its discretion, the University allows for narrow failure in a small proportion of modules to be compensated by good performance in other modules or, in cases of documented illness or other mitigating circumstances, condoned. Details of programme structure and requirements are subject to change without notice. 7
  8. 8. Stage S 8
  9. 9. Progression rules in relation to Stage S A pass in Stage 2 is required for a student to be allowed to proceed to Stage S. Those who have not achieved all the required credits at the end of Stage 2 must switch to an alternative programme, with the default being the equivalent three stage programme without a year in industry. A pass in all 120 credits of Stage S is a requirement for the award of a University degree with a Year in Industry. (The required modules for Stage S may not be condoned, nor compensated for, nor trailed.) When the outcomes of the modules of Stage S are known, students will be informed. If a pass is not achieved in all 120 credits of Stage S, students must switch to an alternative degree, with the default being the equivalent three stage programme without a year in industry. General Points about Stage S The placement is a formal part of this degree taken between Stages 2 and 3. Students are required to keep a log of their training and work experience during the year. The portfolio created is assessed as part of CB699, along with other features, including employers’ views about the placement. A reflective report has to be written by the end of the year (CB698) linked to the portfolio. A member of staff from the university will normally visit students twice during the placement year. A Placement Co-ordinator will assist students in finding a suitable developmental placement through advice and guidance but the search effort is primarily a student responsibility. Placements should be appropriate to the student’s programme and experience. Those outside the UK will require approval of the School Director. Prior Preparation for Stage S The placement year has to be registered with the Local Authority and the University, and hence has to be arranged as soon as possible. Students wishing to undertake a sandwich (year in industry) placement must ensure that they are registered for a sandwich degree within twelve months of their original registration. Failure to adhere to these deadlines may result in a Local Education Authority terminating support. It is essential that students contact their LEA or other funding body to ascertain their eligibility for funding before proceeding with any change of programme. Students should also note that government rules currently require the university to charge a means-tested contribution to tuition fees for a placement year. The maximum is currently about half that for UK or EU students in full-time study. The rules may well change with wider changes in student finance. The university’s Student Finance web pages should provide further details. Students should make contact with the relevant Placement Co- ordinator before starting Stage 2, or as soon as possible after the start of Autumn Term. Briefing meetings will be held about placement degrees before Stage 2 and 3 choices are registered in Stage 1, and near the start of the academic year in Stage 2. These meetings should be attended. Failure to obtain a placement will result in the student transferring to the related three-year programme, where this exists. Students should 9

  12. 12. 14. Support for Students and Their Learning • There is a one-week induction programme for all students joining the Social Sciences Faculty, during which the School provides a one-day induction to the programme itself. • All undergraduates receive a handbook providing information about the School and its student support services • There is a comprehensive School website, where information about all modules is available. • Module guides are provided • There is a good Library providing not only textbooks and journals but also access to databases. A Subject Librarian provides specialist support for students and staff of the Business School. Library training is provided. • The University of Kent and the Imperial College Wye campus have excellent computing facilities, with many open access PCs available 24 hours a day. • The School operates a Personal Academic Support System, which ensures that students have a personal tutor, and that their performance and progress are monitored so that help can be offered where appropriate. Personal tutors provide advice and help on a comprehensive range of personal and academic support matters, and can advise students on where to seek further help. • The University provides a very comprehensive range of support services, both personal and academic. Support specific to University Degrees with a Year in Industry: • The school has placement co-ordinators at each main campus. In conjunction with personal tutors and other colleagues, they provide information, advice and support about applying for, undertaking, and building on the placement experience. • There are briefings about placement degrees in Stage 1 and during Stage 2. In Stage 1 these are linked to choice of programme in Stage 2. In Stage 2 these support the process of applying for placements, and preparing for the requirements of the placement year. • The school’s website contains information and advice about these degrees and links to external sources of help to students. • There is an online discussion group for students registered for placement degrees. It is used to provide access to new placement information. • Students are visited (normally twice) during their placement year by a placement co-ordinator or another colleague. Reports of visits are kept. Discussions with students also cover how to build on the placement experience in Stage 3. • Placement co-ordinators and students on placements keep contact at other times by email and other means. • Placement co-ordinators liaise with employers about placements. Employers are asked to complete a Health and Safety checklist. 15.
