All Accountancy and Finance students must undertake a dissertation. Students taking a joint degree may undertake the dissertation in either discipline, but not both. It is designed to show that you are able to:
Carry out a substantial piece of research on a chosen subject without close supervision
Critically analyse and evaluate work carried out by others
Reach your own conclusions based upon your analysis and evaluation of relevant evidence, whether this is prior research only or prior research coupled with your own research.
Write-up the results of your work in a clear, coherent and logical way.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
The primary and final product of the course is the independent writing of the dissertation
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1st Attempt: 100% continuous assessment (word count 10,000) Resit: None
This will take place via discussions with supervisors and chapter feedback.
Students are required to prepare material for the supervisory meetings and informal feedback will be given on these. They are also required to submit one draft chapter of the thesis and written feedback is given on this.
