What will I study?
Six compulsory modules, designed to give you a solid grounding in the subject and be ready to pursue further study.
Three modules designed to enhance your capabilities in areas of Financial Accounting, Management Accounting and Financial Project Management. Studying Personal Financial Behaviour will develop your understanding of personal financial products and behaviour, as well as what influences it.
Five compulsory modules designed to advance your skills and knowledge to graduate level.
In the second and third years, you will spend more time on reflecting ethics, governance and controversial accounting principles. You will study accounting rules and apply accounting skills. You will have the chance to discuss, evaluate, and anticipate likely future developments.
Teaching and assessment
This course equips you with a deep knowledge of the subject and career-ready skills, such as team working, meeting deadlines, presentation and communication, with large scope for personal development and the development of traits and skills that employers seek.
Teaching formats consist of:
- seminar sized groups
- lectures and seminars
- guest speakers’ events
- fortnightly one-hour live chat session with tutors on MyLearning
During your studies, you’ll be able to make the most of:
- e-learning activities across a variety of media and online tools (MyLearning on UniHub, podcasts, wikis etc)
- flexible access to a diverse range of online resources, quizzes and learning materials
- collaborative tools to learn and engage with your peers
Assessment takes the form of exams and coursework. Your Year 1 assessment does not count towards your final degree classification.
