Nicola Hutchinson

Having just finished my first year of the Blended BA (Hons) in Business Studies, I’ve found the blended nature of the course gave me the best of both worlds. The flexibility of the online material allowed me to balance my studies with working and raising a family, while the small class size in on-campus tutorials fostered a real sense of familiarity with my fellow students and lecturers. This ensured I was always fully supported with my studies. I would recommend this course to anybody looking to further their education but hesitant to pursue a degree through the traditional route
