Programme Structure and Delivery

TV3001-20 Study Skills

The Study Skills Syllabus is intended for students who have undergone the majority of their secondary education in a Non-English medium school. The aim of the syllabus is to ensure that students have the appropriate key skills to cope with study in an English medium university. Whilst it is accepted that such students will have adequate general English language skills, students often need practice in adapting these skills to an academic environment. This course aims to introduce students to conventions in academic language and presentation, and to instill a broader range of study skills, including ICT skills, to maximise the student’s potential at university. 

BM5004-20 Financial Accounting
Business decision making is based on qualitative and quantitative data. Whilst both of these are important, in this module we focus on the financial information provided to management by a robust accounting system. In order to understand how an organization makes short, medium and long term decisions an understanding of financial accounting systems is necessary. Whilst you may not be considering accounting as a career you will almost certainly find that as a graduate in your future employment you will be faced with profit and loss accounts, balance sheets or management accounting documents that you will need to make sense of. Without such an understanding a large area of business information would be closed to you.  The purpose of this module is to make you accountancy literate. 

Method of Assessment
Assessment will vary from presentation, individual assignment, group presentation and assignment etc…
