I wanted a practical course that would prepare me for real-life business action – that’s why I chose EBSL. For example, in the first semester we have a module called ‘Individual Influence Skills’; as part of that course we had to write a CV, cover letter and undergo a mock interview for an internship. International business with Chinese is a perfect combination for me. I think language skills are essential in order to succeed in the international business arena. At EBSL you don’t only study a language; you also get to immerse yourself in the culture during your study period abroad. I’m very happy with my course and feel that I made the right choice in EBSL. And I really can’t wait until my study period in China.
Working in real business and events management situations before you graduate means that you are able to explore career options, test theoretical know-how, and learn the cultural conventions and sensitivities unique to each country’s business practices.

Global Marketing Management pathway
Studying here has given me the oppor tunity to meet people from different cultures and countries. I chose the School as it offers a small and secure environment.

Students are encouraged to ask questions or discuss problems and are able to get instant feedback, building up a personal relationship with academics.
The world has become more and more people-focused; markets are defined by what individual people need, want or desire.

The three-year BSc (Hons) Psychology places an emphasis on the psycho-social aspects of human behaviour. It has a distinctive design and content structure which reflects SPCPâ€™s expertise and its central London location. The programme combines theoretical and practical components and builds research skills across the three years â€“ culminating in the final-year double-module Research Project. A careful balance of core and elective modules allows you to gain a thorough grounding in the basics of the discipline in Years 1-2, prior to specialising and pursuing individual interests in Years 2-3. Core modules include, but are not limited to: Society and the Individual; Conceptual, Cultural and Current Issues in Psychology; Applying Social Psychology; History and Concepts in Therapies and Counselling Psychology, and Applying Cognitive Psychology.
The course begins with an introductory module, in which you can familiarise yourself with the learning environment, practice new skills and refresh existing ones. Thereafter, the course consists of the following modules: Social/Developmental Psychology (e.g. group behaviour, prejudice and discrimination, maternal attachment); Applied Psychologies (e.g. health psychology, psychology of sport and performance); Bio/ Cognitive Psychologies (e.g. emotion and the brain, memory, face recognition); Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, and Research Methods and Experimental Design (including statistics for beginners).
In Year 3, you choose four options from a wide range of exciting elective modules (these may vary from year to year, depending on specialist staff availability). BSc (Hons) Psychology with Integrated Foundation The BSc (Hons) Psychology with Integrated Foundation is a four-year programme, divided into one year of foundation-level studies, and three years of BSc level studies. It is designed for students whose present qualifications do not permit direct entry to the first year of BSc studies, or for those who feel that after a prolonged absence from education they would benefit from a foundation year. Completion of the one year of foundation-level studies guarantees progression to the BSc (Hons) Psychology degree.
