The content of the degree is extremely interesting as it covers a variety of topics and themes that are relevant to all students, and if not there will be a whole range of other themes and topics throughout the weeks that students can choose to focus on instead that is relevant to them. The degree focuses on expanding students thinking and there is a noticeable difference in students knowledge of the world, theory and independent thinking already after 2 months. Seminar leaders make an effort to know their students as individuals and there is plenty of support for students or just extra help whether it's needed or not

I never thought I would enjoy studying accounting and finance. This course proved me wrong. There is so much more to accounting and finance than I could ever imagine. I've learned that from learning the basics of accounting and understanding finance could broaden my view both in terms of business and the way I live my daily life.

The structure of this degree is straightforward and is pretty similar to other course. We have lectures, we have compulsory seminars. But comparing to other course/university, the schedule is more static and is on a weekly basis (for instance, there is a seminar on every Monday or so on, not every other Monday) so I do not need to keep up with the date that much.

The content itself is also pretty tight, we learn the very basic form of accounting in the first year (even if we do not need to use it in real life) and build on it to develop understandings of book keeping. The lecturer is quite clear and answer questions critically, but some seminar leaders are questionable (unclear explanation, teaching style doesn't work for me).

The form of assessment is fair. I think it is easy to assess this degree as it requires practical use of it, therefore the assessment is straightforward and is unbiased.

My overall enjoyment is much higher than what I have expected. Even though I do not want to become an accountant, I still think that taking on this degree will be worthwhile for my future career.

As we have just started 2 months ago and therefore are still doing the first modules of the University, I cannot speak for the wile course.

However, regarding the first modules, the Introduction to Mask and Empty Space 1, it is honestly a little slow but this is due to ensuring every student is at the same level of knowledge.

But that is it so far...

Accounting and finance is a very challenging yet rewarding subject. I am just starting my second year so I am going to give a review of my first year experience and the beginning of my second year. As I did A level maths, the quantitative methods of accounting and finance was quite straight forward as it is a combination of statistics and core maths. For me Economics was the most challenging as I had not studied it previously, however if you studied A Level economics you will be able to get the grasp of it quickly. In addition to this, the lecturers for Economics were very good. Financial accounting was quite new to most of us so it was a bit confusing at first but once you got the hang of it, it was pretty straight forward and repetitive. The university were also very good in proving a bookkeeping software to aid with learning which also contributed to some of your coursework.

I absolutely love this course, although this stems from my love of maths (don't do maths if you're not keen on it). The support network is incredible. You are able to choose from a huge variety of different modules when you reach 3rd year, with a range of interesting compulsory modules throughout 1st and 2nd. I would strongly recommend this course to a lover of maths, as well as the university itself.

The content has more business and other things than maths compared to what I thought the degree was going to be like. There are a lot of lectures and too early on in the morning too so makes it harder to enjoy it ngl, the forms of assessment are ok but I wish wr had more coursework as 70%, 80% and 90% exams seem really daunting especially when there's 8 of them this year too

While the workload is heavy and sometimes arduous, it is only to bring the best out of the students. The course is being readjusted for the better, with coursework accounting for twice as much, students being permitted bilingual dictionaries in the exam and more of an emphasis on grammar.

The module brief was not updated until a couple of weeks before the deadline. The module coordinator was still working on the brief and hence we students had no clue what we were supposed to submit. Although we were informed that it should be handed over for assessment as an essay, we students had no idea what the essay was about and how the format of it should be. Weekly seminars were held which were not helpful. No transparency in terms of how the module will be assessed and marked, i e where the marks are going or why we failed to score high marks.

My favourite module that I have done during my degree. There is a strong focus on both the theoretical and practical side but also how the two link and inform each other. The teaching of this module is excellent and this helps to create a sense of togetherness amongst the students in the seminar which makes sharing your work and ideas a lot less daunting.
