The timetable consists of taught periods in seminars specific to each module and weekly group/individual tutorials. In addition to the timetabled contact time, students are required to engage in independent and group study and much of this work will be self-directed and initiated. Some of this involves working directly with employers and external partners, through consultancy and live projects.
The assessment methods have been designed to authentically measure students’ knowledge and abilities in work-like scenarios, including live projects and case studies, whilst also giving some consideration to the requirements of CCAB bodies, should students wish to progress on to future professional accounting qualifications. All modules require students to act with increasing independence and autonomy and to apply their knowledge and skills in a real-world professional context.
