Careers

In today’s tough jobs market, you need to stand out from the crowd to successfully secure that all important first full-time job after university.  We believe your degree from ARU London will enhance your employability:

  • Your ARU London lecturers all have first-hand experience of business and some continue to work in business.  You are therefore assured that the content of your degree will be directly relevant to the demanding, constantly evolving world of contemporary business.  Furthermore, you will study business from a practical as well as from an academic perspective.
  • ARU London lecturers have a wealth of contacts too and you will study alongside students from all over the world.  All great for networking!
  • Our student-friendly timetables will make it easier for you to secure meaningful, part-time work.  Part-time work will give you valuable experience outside of the classroom and will boost your credentials with a prospective graduate employer.  We are also working with a number of employers to be able to offer part-time work in conjunction with our degrees.
  • During your final year there will be additional seminars with the specific objective of enhancing your future employment prospects.  These will include CV workshops, interview techniques, career counselling and visits from prospective employers.

Modules & assessment

Assessment

  • You will have a minimum of twelve hours’ lectures and tutorials a week.  Each year consists of two semesters of 12 teaching weeks each followed by a period for revision and assessment.
  • The core lectures and tutorials are carefully timetabled to take place on two or three days a week.  We believe this offers our students more chance of finding meaningful, better-paid part-time work than students at many universities where the few hours’ lectures are spread over the whole of the week.
  • You will be expected to undertake extensive independent study when you are not attending lectures.
  • Your learning experience will be further enhanced by skills sessions, tutor surgeries and guest lectures which are organised throughout the year.
  • Each course module is delivered through a combination of large group lectures - where the main ideas and concepts are presented – and tutorials where students are broken into smaller groups for an interactive discussion and analysis of the lecture content.
  • Students are assessed predominantly through a mix of examination and coursework.
