Assessment for Year 1

You’ll be assessed through a mix of essays, presentations, reports and online tests. Our assessment methods have been developed not just to measure your skills, but also to aid your learning. For example, when you’re writing an essay, you’ll receive feedback on a formative exercise first. You’ll then have a chance to make revisions and improvements before handing in a summative essay for assessment. This helps you identify and focus on areas for improvement. The English team also dedicate time in classes to provide support and assistance with content assessments, including providing support and feedback for essays and allocating class time to practice presentations, on which the English teachers will give feedback and suggestions for improvement.

Year 1

Compulsory Modules (120 Credits)

BD-01  (20 Credits)

This module provides a basic understanding of business and management for those students who will undertake an undergraduate degree involving the study of business.  The module pursues the following themes: models of management, the business environment, managing people, leadership, corporate social responsibility, organisational culture, human resource management, managing change, corporate strategy, marketing, organisation structure, managing finance and budgets, managing operations, and managing information systems.

BD-03  (20 Credits)

The aim of this module is to develop an appreciation of the nature and historical development of organisational behaviour.  The module introduces key concepts, theories and methodologies in organisational behaviour and develops an understanding of the linkages between research, theory, and practice.

BD-06  (20 Credits)

The aims of this module are to provide a firm foundation in the theory and practice of accounting for those students going on to study accounting at a more advanced level.  The module assumes no previous studies of accounting and pursues the following themes:  the balance sheet, the profit and loss account, the double entry system, adjustments of accounting, accounts of limited companies, costing, budgeting and variance analysis.

BD-07  (20 Credits)

Topics to be covered in this module include:  what is economics, its scientific status; demand and supply analysis including elasticity concepts and tax incidence; costs and profit maximisation; perfect competition, monopoly and monopolistic competition; game theory and oligopoly; factor markets; an introduction to welfare economics – market failure, public goods and externalities.  There will be some simple applications of calculus to problems in microeconomics such as profit maximisation etc.

BD-08  (20 Credits)

Introductory Macroeconomics is a module designed as an introduction to university-level macroeconomic analysis.  We start by considering national income accounting and the circular flow of income model.  We then consider output and aggregate demand in an economy with a fixed price level: we analyse the expenditure multiplier model, the goods market and fiscal policy; the money market and monetary policy; the IS-LM model.  We finally move on to an economy with a flexible price level and introduce aggregate supply factors into the analysis: we consider the Aggregate Supply and Aggregate Demand model; inflation, unemployment, and the Phillips’ curve; economic growth.

BD-09  (20 Credits)

This module is broadly divided into three parts.  Firstly, students are trained in the transferable skills of spreadsheets, including their usage in a business context.  Secondly, the module introduces basic mathematical techniques that are used in analysis, including a revision of basic maths, introductory statistics, and modelling.  Thirdly, the module engages students in statistical analysis for a range of problems using SPSS or similar software.  Considerable attention is placed on the interpretation of numbers.

ESSBE  (0 Credits)

The aims of this module are:

  • to improve students’ ability to deal with complex academic texts
  • to develop critical ability in relation to academic writing
  • to develop fluency and confidence in academic discussion and (iv) to enhance students’ ability to extract information from spoken texts

The module will include an investigative project involving research and investigation, data collection and analysis and a written and oral presentation of methods and results.
(Note from HC – this is not a credited module – students do not receive credits for this as they are just tested on English at the end).

Important Information:
Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. The University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. Availability of optional modules may be restricted owing to timetabling, lack of demand, or limited places. Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.
