SEMINAR IN CONTEMPORARY TOPICS: FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING - 2020/1
Module code: MAND030
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. Further information on changes made to modules during the 2020/21 academic year can be found here: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes-old
Due to the volume of changes made during the 2020/21 academic year this means that some information within the programme and module catalogue had been amended. Please ensure that you are viewing your modules alongside the module changes page. If you have any queries you are invited to contact the relevant Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
While the dissertation provides an in-depth understanding of a specific topic, this module is designed to provide students a broad-based understanding of their specific discipline or field. It will introduce students to contemporary developments in their discipline focusing on a selected number of topics which reflect the research interests of academic staff. The issues to be covered will be of both substantive (theory, debates, and findings) and methodological nature.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to ensure students achieve the learning outcomes. As a seminar style module, students will be expected to read assigned journal articles and attend each session ready to participate in class discussions. Each instructor will structure discussions around specific themes consistent with the module’s objectives.
The learning and teaching methods include:
Readings and self-study
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
