This course will provide you with a comprehensive grasp of the financial business, with a mix of theoretical and practical study throughout your studies. Your foundational year of studies is intended to provide you with a core understanding of major industry concepts, as well as necessary preparation for the start of your Bachelor’s degree.

Year 1 of your studies will improve your grasp of the industry’s key components, including an introduction module called Management Accounting I and learning about the Dynamic Business Environment. Your second year introduces you to more specialist sectors of the industry, with a more intensive learning framework, including courses such as Management Accounting II, Business and Corporate Law, Financial Reporting, and Leadership and Change. Your final year will include several necessary modules, as well as the option of completing a dissertation or combining the Business Ethics module with a research project.

This course gives you numerous opportunity to test your knowledge and refine your abilities using ‘formative’ assessment. A formative assessment will be done prior to your formal’summative’ assessment, which will decide your final grade.

Each module typically includes at least one item of formative evaluation on which you will receive feedback from your course staff. Formative assessments are solely for developmental purposes and do not contribute toward your final module mark. They are intended to help you gain more knowledge and confidence in the module topic and formal evaluation methods. Students who do not participate in informal assessments frequently struggle with Foundation Year progression and subsequent academic levels.


The official summative assessment usually takes place at the end of each module. Written exams and various types of coursework, such as reports, portfolios, essays, and presentations, are examples of assessment methods. Summative assessment marks are applied to your final module mark at Unique Mark Limited. Assessment procedures are reviewed every year and may be updated in response to feedback from students or External Examiners, who are independent academic experts appointed by Canterbury Christ Church University to provide external assurance regarding the academic standards of your course.
