- 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 requires 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.
