We are really looking forward to meeting you in September 2020. This year we will be adopting a hybrid approach to teaching delivery, through a combination of both face-to-face and online delivery teaching mechanisms. This approach to teaching and learning has been considered the most appropriate way of ensuring we all remain safe whilst allowing you to commence your studies.
During your induction week you will have the opportunity to meet various staff at the University including the Head of the Business School, the Chair of the Undergraduate Programme Studies Board, a number of module leaders, and the Programme Leader. We have a range of other interesting activities planned to enable you to gain knowledge and understanding of the University and to put you into a position to successfully start your studies the following week when teaching begins.
As part of the hybrid approach to delivering the course you will receive weekly face-to-face module session times with tutors and fellow students, online and virtual module sessions covering a range of activities, online interactive sessions from guest speakers and professional accounting bodies and directed reading and activities to enable you to actively participate within independent study.
Online activities will be captured allowing you to revisit these at future time points to reinforce learning. Our software will allow you to actively participate and engage with tutors and other students within the scheduled online sessions. We are continually reviewing the position on social distancing and as conditions develop we will adopt our approach to teaching and learning accordingly.
