please check my msgs n get back 2 me. thanx.
Haha yep In my undergraduate I was in lectures with over 300 people because of shared modules - my course only had 20!
Trees, bank account, I don't care where it grows as long as I get some! I need to be working full time, or even part time, but I just can't fit it in around uni
Hehe thanks, I hope we do too Any questions, give me a bell!
Whoa! 50 to 200!? i thought there were only gonna be about 16 people in the classes! I didn't think students from other courses were gonna be in the modules. Nice!
And yes, I also want cash to grow, not on trees but in my bank account. lol. And I can't wait to start working full-time 'cos when I start next year, i'll be 26 and when I finish in 2012 I'll be 27! Get it out the way quicktime. hehe. Mature student.
Well, I must admit, you've made my day! It was really sweet talking to you. Hope we chat again.
Haha yeah, I know the feeling! I jumped right in after my undergraduate and I just want cash to grow on trees!
Each module is made up of people from different courses - some just have Accounting & Financial Management students, whereas some will have Banking students or Finance students as well. The more students, the bigger the lecture theatre - I have two 'big' lectures in the theatres (though the related seminars are smaller and in classrooms). My audit class has around 50 people, my quantitative methods class has over 200.
Hehe I don't imagine their names are common knowledge out in the real world, but they're certainly respected within BES and are important to the course. Dr. Chin Bun Tse might be the man you're thinking of - he is a Financy person that hasn't really featured in my studies so far (as senior course rep, I know a lot of the top people in EFA) so I don't know him that well
Ah! ok. thanks to you i'll be going there in sep 2011. Better start saving up my £4710. lol.
BTW, roughly how many people are there in your class? Also do you use the actual lecture theatre in some of the modules or do you just use standard classrooms?
by the way, i've never heard of any of the people you mentioned like eileen and shinder thandi. all i have heard of is that dr. chin tun bse or whatever his name is. Saw a pic of him on the cov website. lol.
gt bk 2 me :-)
hi! thanks for the fast reply!
The other day i did infact call the university and one of the regular PG people answered the phone. The person said that i didn't require any previous knowledge in the subject which contradicts the entry requirements stated on the cov uni website. I was still a bit 'mmmm' you know!? lol. that's why i thought i'd send u a msg.
I decided to look around to see if there were any unis willing to take on 'fresh' people in the subject. At first i checked aston uni, they wanted £9000 (pffft!) then i looked at birmingham city uni, they wanted me to be already exempt from F1-F9 papers! then i finally looked at coventry. I even checked the coventry Msc modules with the acca exemptions website and it looks like i'll be exempt from 5 papers from the MSc alone! I think that's great! But i don't think i'll be able to choose my own modules to exempt myself from more papers!? I dunno.
anyway.....get bk 2 me. x
Close - I have a BA in Accountancy, and I'm studing the MSc Accounting & Financial Management course.
You're supposedly 'required' to have a grounding accountancy, but a lot of the stuff we're doing this semester is fairly basic, though it's true that some knowledge would help, or you might find it moves quite quickly. I'm not sure about second semester modules, but I'd imagine similar requirements apply.
If you talk to our postgraduate admissions (I'd recommend trying, if possible, to get through to actual EFA staff rather than the general PG people - Shinder Thandi is department head, but I don't know who is really in charge! Definitely try and speak to our specific department as they know best - Graham Sadler may also be a good one to get hold of).
If you have any more questions or want some help, just give me a bell and I'll help you as best I can
Hi. I've read some of your posts and my understanding is that you've done a BA in accounting and finance and are currently doing an MSc in accounting too at coventry?
If so....i've got a question to ask. I'm thinking about doing the MSc in Accounting and Financial Management at coventry but i don't have any previous knowledge in the subject. I already have a degree but it's IT related and i want to change direction.
Do i hardly require knowledge in accounting or will i struggle if i do this masters course? Cheers.
