Administration & IT

Irrespective of the size or complexity of an organisation, there are a range of administrative functions which must be undertaken if that organisation is to successfully achieve its aims. This is where the study of Administration comes in.

Administration is the study of the use and communication of business information. Students will gain an understanding of the importance of such information for businesses and the skills necessary to make it effective.

Throughout the study of Administration, students will acquire many skills that can be transferred to the world of work or further study such as: problem solving, decision making, ICT, oral and written communication and numeracy. As students work towards solving problems they will be encouraged to review and evaluate the success of their actions.


The Administration function in a business organisation will make extensive use of ICT in the processing and communication of information and as such Administration courses emphasise the increasing role that ICT plays in this process. Students will learn a vast range of skills in using various software applications and communication tools in collecting, processing and transmitting information.
