WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE
Kensington College of Business (KCB) is a partner with the University of Chester – one of the oldest British Institutions devoted to Higher Education in the UK. University of Chester has been committed to delivering success for more than 175 years and the wealth of experience is reflected in consistently high levels of student satisfaction, resultant employability and the successes of its graduates.
KCB combines the history of the University of Chester with an eight-storey building in Central London in order to deliver the Law within the Business Degree* programme.
With connections to the University of Chester you will gain substantial knowledge of the key legal and financial institutions, including courts, law firms, barrister chambers, the world’s leading corporations, professional-services firms, banks and regulatory bodies to name but a few-all within a short walking distance from KCB.
We have developed a course for those students specifically interested in obtaining an overview of aspects of Law and wish to understand the functioning of businesses, together with an appreciation of legalities, accounting principles and management duties. These are the broader skills that are required of practising solicitors who must be commercially aware to demonstrate knowledge of clients’ businesses, manage a client’s money and be prepared to run a solicitors’ practice as a business.
The law and business world works hand-in-hand towards the successful management of businesses. The law provides the framework for successful enterprise as well as the means for redress when conflicts arise. You will be provided with a range of core modules that will help you appreciate the roles of both.
The University of Chester, in partnership with KCB, is one of the Universities that is able to offer a regulated Qualifying Law Degree, which grants you onward access to further training as a solicitor or barrister – should that be your career ambition. This is combined with the Business Management modules to further provide you with increased versatility to specialise on more commercially-focused endeavours.
You will be well prepared for the demands, challenges and rewards of a prestigious, intellectual, dynamic and fast-paced career.
Such is the nature of the professional services industry that there is an increasing trend for a variety of services to be offered ‘under one roof’. This course will therefore be of significant benefit to those that are entrepreneurially-minded and also wish to develop the ability to think through a wide range of issues, which is encouraged on this degree programme.
You will be taught by lecturers and tutors with a wealth of experience in law and business.
