This course allows students holding appropriate accounting professional qualifications to top-up to full Master’s level.
The course comprises an introduction to research methods (which will include consideration of current issues in accounting and finance) and a dissertation. The Research Methods module must be completed before undertaking the dissertation. The module is taught through a series of seminars adopting a range of learning strategies; including formal tutor-led delivery and student-centred exercises, supplemented by direct reading. You are supervised during the preparation of the research proposal and the dissertation. Dissertations are normally submitted for assessment within one year.
You are assigned a personal tutor - a member of the Accountancy and Finance course team - who will form an overview of your progress on the course, and who will be available for advice and feedback.
Graduates from this course are ideally placed for further academic study to PhD level, or careers in universities and colleges, industry, commerce, and financial services.
