SEMINAR IN CONTEMPORARY TOPICS: FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING - 2021/2
Module code: MAND030
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.
Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.
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.
