By combining studies in your department with modules delivered by the Business School, you will graduate with a powerful array of skills that will give you the flexibility to alter the direction of your career in response to changes in the workplace environment.
Registration opening dates
BPES registration opens at 9am on Thursday 14 May 2020 for Autumn Term modules and 9am on Thursday 21 May 2020 for Spring Term modules. Registration for BPES 2020/21 modules will be via the Departmental Student System (DSS) and will remain open until 5pm on Friday 5 June 2020 but students are advised to sign up at the earliest opportunity as places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Once modules are at capacity, students who attempt to register thereafter will be added to a waiting list.
Find out more by downloading our registration instructions.
Please note that students who wish to select a BPES module as their iExplore option, will instead need to register via a separate iExplore module selection system. More information about iExplore can be found on their webpages.
Each department decides which modules are available to their students. Before registering, you should check with your department whether the module you want to take is offered under your programme.
