Hi Will

The reading lists will be released nearer the start of term so I woulfn't worry about it too much for now. Most textbooks will be available online so there may not be any need to go out and buy any.

If you decide when you start term that you do want to get some textbooks, my advice would be to get them from a second/third year student. The textbooks don't tend to change that mych year-on-year and they'll be a lot cheaper second hand

Let me know if I can help any further

Hi Will

Most 2nd/3rd years will post on the NTU facebook pages as they will want to sell their books. You'd just have to send them a message about when you could collect and how much you are willing to pay

Hi sdrx


Third year is a mix of coursework and exams, most modules with have an exam and a coursework. There is no dissertation(!), it is in fact a research project which can be based upon anything to do with marketing. The end report is maximum 6,000 words so really isn't that daunting.

Let me know if you have any other questions

Thanks for replying, so when do we have to do the research project? Is it something that we have to develop throughout the year? How many exams do we have and how many pieces of coursework?

Sorry for all the questions haha

No problem, ask away

The main bulk of the research project is done in the 2nd half of the year, but you are encouraged to develop your ideas and have a plan together before this.

Improving customer experience is 50% Exam 50% course work
Contemporary issues in Strategic Marketing Management is 50% Essay 50% Exam
Leadership & Employability is 40% a group presentation 60% individual report

And then the last module is optional so depending on which one you choose will depend on how you are assesed.

Hope that helps!

Are the exams in January or summer? Or a bit of both. I have a topic I would like to do for my research project, is it worth starting to get a plan together now?

All of the exams will be in the summer but the coursework is spread out over the year

You could definitely start to plan your ideas out but don't start to do any primary research as this will be against research ethics that you will need to sign when you being the module.

Hi, me again!

I got a 2:1 overall in second year. Can’t seem to find much online about the grading system for third year and would like to know how achievable it is for me to get a 1st overall, through the module assessments we have previously spoken about.

Any information or opinion would be appreciated,

thanks!

Hey sdrx


That's great news! Massive congratulations

Your second year counts for 20% and then third year being 80%. I've been told that as a general rule of thumb if you get a first in half of your modules and a 2:1 in the rest, you are well on your way towards getting that first.

With 68% of the assessment in final year being coursework, it will help you to work out what you may need to get when your doing your exams

Hope that helps!

If you don't mind can you please help me out. I'll be starting my second year and I'm transferring to a different university. I have the option of doing a joint degree where i can either do marketing or business but I'm not sure which would be the best in terms of job prospects. Can you please give me some advice?
