Field Trips

Each year, the School offers a number of field trips to undergraduate students on various modules. These visits are designed to help students grasp a better understanding of the subjects introduced in lectures and to see how the theory applies to real-life business settings.

China

Offered to students studying the Chinese Business and Language module. In recent years students have had the opportunity to visit Shanghai, Beijing and Nanjing and to see some of China's most famous landmarks, including the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City and the 'Bird's Nest' Olympic Stadium.
