" Accounting Foundation Year OVERVIEW

This course enables successful students to automatically progress to the Management and Professional Accounting BA (Hons) Degree course at Coventry University Scarborough Campus. 

This course provides a thorough introduction to financial and management accounting and its role in business organisations.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

This course provides a thorough introduction to finance and management accounting and its role in business organisations. Topics range from cash management and tax to preparing financial statements for sole traders and partnerships. You should also be able to develop the skills and knowledge that will prepare you to continue your studies at HNC, HND and BA (Hons) degree levels within Coventry University Scarborough Campus.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?
  • Academic skills for accounting
  • Accounting and spreadsheets
  • Cash management and tax
  • Cost and revenue and professional ethics

On successful completion of the programme you should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • The function of and the contexts in which accounting operates;
  • The principles of accounts preparation;
  • Principles of cash management;
  • Approaches to cost accounting;
  • Professional ethics in accounting and finance;
  • The principles of academic research skills to apply critical and detailed thinking;
  • The principles of independent and self-managed learning.
HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?

This course will be taught through a variety of methods – lectures, tutorials, self-directed learning, textbooks, module webs, scenario-based learning sets, professional libraries and resources, journals and case studies, seminars, discussion forums and peer-to-peer learning.

Professional body qualifications

Modules within the programme include units based on the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Level 3 qualification. Upon successful completion of these elements you’ll have the opportunity to take the examinations to complete this professional qualification. This is not, however, a condition of academic credit: assessments for the professional qualification are independent from those undertaken for the academic award.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

At Coventry University Scarborough Campus there are no traditional final examinations to worry about. Instead, we’ll assess your learning through course work and phase tests. Assessments take place at the end of each six-week block. Tutors can provide support through regular updates and tutorials, either online or face to face.

TEACHING CONTACT HOURS

As a full-time student a normal learning block will mean that you get 18 hours of teaching each week in groups of approximately 25-50 students. Depending on the course you have chosen, you will attend morning (9.00-13.00) or afternoon (14.00-18.00) sessions. You will also need to attend one two-hour tutorial each week.
