This module recognises the period of study abroad undertaken by students on the Business Studies International programme. Students take 45 credits of language, cultural and business modules in our partner universities in France, Spain, Germany, Austria, China and Japan. These are examined and assessed by our partner institutions under our Socrates/Erasmus/other international agreements. Students must seek advance approval from their coordinators for the modules which they wish to take. This is formalised through the completion of Learning Agreements.LC330 is the module code used for administrative convenience to capture the pass/fail overall result for the 45 credit component of the year abroad.
