Learning Outcomes
This paper is proposed as an essential element of the MProfAcct qualification. As a conversion course to enable students to seek professional accreditation, there is a need to provide a range of required study topics. This paper focuses on the mechanics of financial accounting plus the accounting environment and professional standards, compulsory prerequisite knowledge for subsequent advanced-level papers. Related undergraduate coverage of the same topics require at least two full 18-point papers and two semesters. This combines the topics into a single semester paper, especially designed for the MProfAcct. The volume and intensity of study required will present a significant challenge, appropriate for more mature, postgraduate students.
