This module provides students with the fundamental knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to construct and interpret financial and cost accounting statements. The module is delivered with an emphasis on forensic analysis and investigation, blending traditional teaching with student led enquiry to enable students to quickly build expertise directly relevant to the current needs of financial managers and clients. In addition to enabling students to classify and explain cost statements for allocation and apportionment of overheads, the module looks to prepare students to analyse marginal costing statements and produce and interpret break-even charts, as well as giving them the ability to understand financial accounting and prepare a raft of financial accounting statements for stakeholder use.
A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed. There is some scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.
In addition to each of your module assessments you will take a programme level assessment in each of the first and second year of your programme. This is designed to assess your understanding of everything you have been taught and to help you to understand how different elements of your degree fit together to make a coherent programme.
You will be given weekly directed activities to complete in each module. These will contribute marks towards the final module assessment and reward engagement with the content of the module. They will also help you to check your understanding of what has been taught. Some of these activities may include further reading or preparation tasks for seminars. Some of the tasks will be completed online and may include quizzes which provide you with instant feedback on your understanding of the module content. In some modules lecturers may place some of the taught content on videos which you may be required to watch prior to attending a class. This will free up time for you to work on meaningful projects in class.
Assessment in Accounting and Business additionally enables students to gain exemption from all or part of the Foundation stage examinations for ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).
Assessments tailored to this course include the production of portfolios of work, individual and group presentations as well as coursework reports research projects and more traditional seen and unseen exam papers.
On this programme there are some assessments which are marked on a pass/fail basis rather than graded. Please note that these assessments are excluded from the calculations made to produce the figures published in the Key Information Set (KIS) for this programme/subject.
