Bishop Grosseteste University to offer more degree courses

Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln will offer degree courses in Health and Social Care, Sociology, Psychology, Counselling and Entrepreneurship from September 2015.

The new courses have been added in response to demand from students and employers, leading BGU to review its courses.

While also offering health-related courses and Sociology to the benefit of the area, the university will also enhance its existing Education programmes with a new single honours degree in Education Studies.

In Business and Enterprise, BGU will offer a programme promoting entrepreneurship that focuses on students working in teams to start and run new businesses in dedicated business units.

The Reverend Professor Peter Neil, Vice Chancellor of BGU, said: “Developing BGU’s academic portfolio through a range of new and exciting courses is a key part of our growth strategy.

“Like all universities we have to respond to what students and employers want, and these new courses will ensure that we can continue to provide students and businesses with the skills that they require to be successful in the future.”

However, BGU will no longer offer Music or Visual Art at undergraduate level once current students have completed their studies. PGCE courses in Music will continue to be offered for postgraduates.

Students will still be able to take part in music at the university though through the choir or projects with the local community through the Community Music Development Co-ordinator.
