If you are seeking that vital next step in your exporting career – or keen to equip your employees with the skills and expertise to harness the wealth of opportunities in international trade and supply chain – then sign up to our dynamic Foundation Degree, BSc (Hons) and MSc degree qualifications

Boosting careers, professional experience and employers’ skills bases in today’s ever-changing workplace, the next enrolment for these groundbreaking higher level international trade qualifications is January.


Foundation Degree – Professional Practice in International Trade

An innovative course developed in collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University, the two-year Foundation Degree is aimed at those looking to develop their career and pursue further academic qualifications.

It is taught online by University tutors and international trade experts, with full access to University resources. The degree is assessed through work-based assignments.

Suitable for all professionals, regardless of industry or sector, who may be working in export, import, trade or international business. It is intended to bridge the gap between the Institute’s NVQ qualification range and degree courses. The deadline is January 2017 for April 2017 enrolments – apply here.


BSc (Hons) Management Practice International Trade

A part-time, two-year, online work-based course with Plymouth University, the BSc is designed to fit in with busy careers by allowing students to work anywhere and anytime.  They develop into confident, competent managers who can add value to their employer in their current role or move on to fresh challenges.

Students will study 60 credits in Year One and 60 credits in Year Two, thereby completing 120 level 6 credits over two years, requiring approximately 10 weeks of learning activities to complete. The course structure is designed to give you an opportunity to study anywhere and anytime to suit your lifestyle.

BSc (Hons) programme eligible for apprenticeship funding

We’re delighted to announce that, from April 2017, an innovative government initiative enables employees to be fully funded while studying for the above degree. In a ‘win-win’, this style of university-level study means you gain a full Honours degree and enhance your existing skills at the same time.
