The Fairfield School Business (FSB) is honoured and excited
to announce a new strategic partnership with Bath Spa
University. The partnership will deliver Business and
Healthcare focused degrees at FSB’s Croydon and Digbeth
(Birmingham) campuses to support regional growth and help build
back better, and fairer, from the pandemic.


The new partnership, where programmes are taught by FSB and awarded by Bath Spa University, will commence with a BA in Business and Management – at FSB Digbeth on 28 June and then at FSB Croydon in September – followed by a BSc (Hons) in Health and Social Care Management – at both FSB Digbeth and FSB Croydon in September.


‘We are extremely proud to be entering into this partnership with Bath Spa University. We have all been inspired by Bath Spa’s commitment to its visionary courses and student wellbeing,’ said Mr Syed Zaidi, FSB’s Founder and CEO, commenting on the announcement. ‘We are certain that this partnership represents another exciting step for FSB students as Bath Spa shares our values in widening participation and access to Higher Education.’


Professor Neil Sammells, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost at Bath Spa University, added: ‘We are delighted to be entering into a strategic partnership with Fairfield School of Business.


‘Higher and further education institutions have a significant part to play in developing the skills needed by the job market as the country recovers from the effects of the pandemic.


‘Bath Spa has long been committed to widening access to higher education and our new partnership with FSB will give students in different parts of the country the opportunity to gain a Bath Spa degree.’


Our FSB Croydon campus is conveniently located opposite East Croydon station.

Dr John Pomeroy, FSB’s Principal, commented: ‘We are enthusiastic at the prospect of supporting regional success in partnership with Bath Spa University. Their degrees we will be offering are especially suited to our students and are particularly well designed to enhance their employability when they graduate.’
