Questions about fees?
Please note, tuition fees for Home students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students in line with an inflationary amount determined by government. Oxford Brookes University intends to maintain its fees for new and returning Home students at the maximum permitted level.
Tuition fees for International students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students.
The following factors will be taken into account by the University when it is setting the annual fees: inflationary measures such as the retail price indices, projected increases in University costs, changes in the level of funding received from Government sources, admissions statistics and access considerations including the availability of student support.
How and when to pay
Tuition fee instalments for the semester are due by the Monday of week 1 of each semester. Students are not liable for full fees for that semester if they leave before week 4. If the leaving date is after week 4, full fees for the semester are payable.

Learning and assessment
This interdisciplinary degree includes modules on business and management theory and practice, accounting, and professional practice, as well as business relevant areas of law such as contract, employment and corporate law. At the same time, you will take modules in which the interplay between business and law are explored, including tort for business, where principles of the law of tort are interwoven with the activities of running a business.
After you graduate
Students on this programme can progress to a range of careers in business or not- for-profit organisations, and will be able to demonstrate an understanding of key legal principles and practice. Employers across a range of industries place considerable value on the problem-solving and adaptability competencies that students on interdisciplinary programmes tend to develop, as a direct result of their experience learning across two disciplines.
Throughout this course, there is a strong emphasis on the links we have with industry. For instance, students will complete modules which will host a variety of guest speakers. Previous guest speakers have come from businesses such as BMW, Samsung and Glaxo Smith Kline.
You will have the opportunity to attend careers events hosted by both the School of Law and Social Sciences and the Business School.
Recent employers of Business School graduates include Caterpillar, Disney, Harley Davidson and IBM.
