BA (Hons) Combined

Our degree programme is designed to combine flexibly with a range of other subjects in the University. This provides graduates a combination of knowledge and the opportunity to apply a range of cognitive, practical and applied vocational skills needed for success, starting your own business or career progression in the modern business world.

This degree covers a balanced curriculum between the different business disciplines, supported by the development of applied business skills and an understanding of the business world. Chester and Warrington and their surrounding areas are rapidly developing business centres which have attracted both major national and international companies.

Our Business programme takes into account the latest business developments and has been designed to provide essential business subjects that will complement your other combination. You will follow a specially designed course and there is the opportunity to tailor your studies towards your particular interests.


Combined Honours students can select to undertake, after the first year, a year's paid work placement in industry. This takes place between the second and fourth year.   We have strong links with Chester and regional businesses, which both enhances the relevance of this degree and will help you to find professional work-based placements.
