Teaching and Learning Activities
The teaching methods used throughout the course are diverse and include lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, practicals, and fieldwork. This variety of teaching methods will enhance student achievement, satisfaction, and employability.
A safe learning environment is provided throughout the course. Students will be encouraged to experiment in their learning and ‘take risks’, while extensive support is being given by module leaders, tutors, and personal tutors, to ensure a safe environment for creative freedom – a practice especially encouraged in semester one of level 4.
For example, in the Professional and Academic Success modules – at both Level 4 and 5, the students will be required to choose a research method and will be responsible for justifying this choice. However, module tutors will ensure this choice is relevant and valid to protect the student whilst taking this “risk”. At Level 6, the Hospitality Consultancy Ventures module carries a degree of risk in the choice of project and client. However, tutors will intervene if necessary, although at this level it is expected to be less frequent. This level of protection and intervention will provide a safe and secure learning environment, whilst ensuring that students are participating in challenging and authentic learning tasks.
As students’ progress through the course, they will be encouraged to become increasingly independent learners and thinkers, and the learning environment will become increasingly challenging as they move from level 4 to level 6.
The course is vertically and horizontally integrated and students will build on knowledge, skills, and abilities from level 4, and throughout level 5, to achieve the course learning outcomes at level 6. The learning and teaching activities throughout the course will enable students to succeed at every level and will produce capable level 6 undergraduates who can then become successful hospitality business managers in an increasingly complex, globalised world.

2. BSc (Hons) Cyber Security and Digital Forensics
The BSc (Hons) Cyber Security and Digital Forensics (*Subject to validation) at The British College is a partnership with the University of the West of England.
Study one of our highest-ranking degrees for graduate employment and play an important role in helping organisations manage cyber-attacks and investigate digital evidence.
As a graduate, you’ll be highly employable. Organisations often approach graduates, due to the skills shortage in this field. Most students are in employment within six months of graduating. Choose from a range of careers in the private or public sector. Opportunities include working for in-house forensics, e-discovery and security teams, legal practices or the police.
Highly skilled security professionals are in high demand. No organisation is immune to cybercrime, meaning that all need to make IT security a top priority. The first step is finding the most qualified professionals to lead the way.
Why study cybersecurity and digital forensics?
Cybercrime is on the increase and set to keep growing as technology becomes more widespread.
High-level security breaches have led government, public services and corporations to dedicate more resources to computer security.
Meanwhile, digital forensics is providing a wealth of material for law enforcement for the police and businesses.
This has led the UK government to highlight an urgent need for skilled graduates in forensic computing.
Cybersecurity professionals are responsible for protecting IT infrastructure, edge devices, networks, and data.
More granularly, they are responsible for preventing data breaches and monitoring and reacting to attacks.
The skills of programmer and systems or network administrators and in math and statistics are undoubtedly relevant to the role of an IT security professional, but equally as critical are the things that aren’t necessarily things that can be taught – critical thinking, curiosity, and a passion for learning and research.
Choose from careers in government and the private or public sector.
Roles can be within forensics and security teams, legal practices or the police and related organisations.
Experiment and develop vital professional skills in our modern facilities.
Gather and evaluate forensic evidence using industry-recognized software such as EnCase and Autopsy in well-equipped computer labs.
Analyze viruses and attempt to hack systems in our dedicated isolation lab. Develop and test networks using our specialist networks labs.
Our mix of traditional and creative learning environments will enable you to learn essential knowledge and real-world skills, standing you in good stead for your professional career.
