You're eager to enhance your career but may feel a lack of degree is holding you back. You're motivated and want to make the exciting leap into higher education and potentially a new direction in business or law, but haven't studied at this level before. Fresh Start is for you.
Fresh Start is an intensive two-week course to prepare you for degree-level study at ARU by letting you experience it, while opening the door to the possibilities a degree could bring in enhancing your career and your future prospects.
If you haven't studied for a few years and have no A-levels, that's no problem. Our team will provide guidance and support throughout to build not just your academic knowledge but also your study and employability skills. Our academic staff are on hand to guide you through the theoretical aspects of the course.
The course runs over two weeks, starting in June or November, in Cambridge or Chelmsford.
Your first week will be spent on campus full-time, learning the key skills you'll need for the second week and the assessment, including academic writing, research skills and critical reasoning. The second half of the course is self-study under the guidance of your Course Leader, where you will use all the skills from week one, to build a project based on the retail industry.
Your assessment is in the form of a project assignment, which you will be working towards throughout your first week. This assignment will be centred on the retail industry. For business students, it's an 'Examination of the economic/social/financial factors which drive success or failure in the retail industry', for those interested in law, you'll look at 'What can legislators do to create more equality/level the playing field in the retail industry?'
You have a highly active mind and see opportunity everywhere. Now you need theory and life-changing skills to sharpen your approach to management. At the Faculty of Business & Law, you will immerse yourself in a multicultural environment where technology blends with teaching to create a dynamic and innovative learning environment. An environment to help you gain those skills.
