WORLD OF WORK - 2022/3
Module code: CHE2027
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has 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 have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice during the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
Enhancing personal, professional and mathematical skills with an aim to enhance professional employability.

Failure of the module due to the group unit of assessment (part of Shares Game) will require the completion of an essay on the financial shares market and the selected chemical companies.
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate sufficient skills of the above.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- oral presentations (individual) 15%
- professional writing (precis) 15%
- Shares Game: contributes 40% to the module mark which is split as follows: presentation (10), Excel spreadsheet (5), report on individual performance (20), report on group performance (5)
- Practical Excel examination (2 hours) 30%.
- interim Shares Game progress through feedback on progress, suppplemented with examples of good practice
- class based Excel exercises
Throughout all classes and workshops
Individual and group coursework

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.
