Modules

For the full programme structure and module breakdown, please visit the School's web pages at http://www.swansea.ac.uk/som/. Year 1 will include compulsory modules which will give you a grounding in core busines principles including: marketing, accounting, operations and finance. In addition, we provide a range of modules that cover the basics for all areas of business, including maths and statistics as well as professional skills. Years 2 and 3 will include a combination of advanced compulsory content (specific to the pathway), optional module choices and the Final Year Project.

Assessment method

For details on each module’s assessment criteria, please consult the Module Catalogue within the School's web pages at http://www.swansea.ac.uk/som/. Typically, each module includes a written examination after the taught elements have been completed (so a 15 credit module taken in the first semester will be examined in January) and coursework or continuous assessment consisting of a number of assignments. Assignments may be individual assignments, group assignments, presentations, and business reports. Students thus have every opportunity to develop key-skills in the use of Information Technology to gather, coordinate and present information, and also their confidence in presentation. Typically continuous assessment might count for approximately 30% of the total mark, with examinations weighted at 70% but the proportion can vary considerably between modules.
