Programme Overview

British Programme

Our programmes are offered in partnership with the prestigious Cardiff Metropolitan University. Students are expected to follow the standards of the British Curriculum offered by the partner university in the UK. 

It is important for students joining SIST to understand that the British Education System is vastly different from other systems, students are taught independence in learning and are dealt with as responsible adults who hold the responsibility of their own growth and learning.

Research Based Education

Our programmes are taught in the same manner as in the UK. Students are thus expected to carry out research using Cardiff Met e-Library of over 50,000 Resources. Assignments are handed using Cardiff Met Moodle Platform as in the UK.

SIST Students have access to the E-library of Cardiff Metropolitan University, which contains over 50,000 ebooks and research articles. Students will find articles and books for every assignment topic assigned to them and thus are expected to conduct proper research and referencing using the Author-Date or also referred to as the Harvard Referencing method. 

Course Specialisation

Our students pursue 3 years of Business Management studies with practical learning methods.

The first year is dedicated to acquiring fundamental and essential knowledge for the rest of their studies. Students also have the chance to study different core modules that would allow them to experiment with their knowledge and strengths to be able to decide on the best specialisation for them. 

In their second year, students choose their pathway, students choosing International Trade will continue their studies in a class with students of the International Trade major only. 

For their third year, students have the opportunity to continue their studies with our partner University Cardiff Metropolitan University by applying for the ERASMUS Plus Programme.

Students are also able to transfer to Cardiff Metropolitan University starting from the first year on their own funds. The majority of our students complete their Bachelor studies here with SIST and opt for a Masters abroad.
