Overview

Year One offers a broad mix of modules which will introduce you to the way economy works and how money and value form part of that process. You will focus on foundation subjects such as economics, finance and data analysis.

Modules

  • Introduction to Economics

    The aim of this module is to introduce you to some core knowledge of economics. The module considers both microeconomics whereby economic decisions are made at the individual level and macroeconomics, a branch of economics where decision-making occurs at the economy level. In microeconomics, you will use the fundamental model of demand and supply to understand how the economy works. Elasticity, market structures and market failures will allow students to understand better the economic environment and resultant policy implications.

    Be taught essential skills in professional conduct and learn to research, record and present your work. The module aims to introduce and develop the skills you will need for success on your degree and in your subsequent professional career. Skills introduced will include some of the essential underlying personal and information handling skills, numerical techniques and basic mathematical and statistical foundations required by all students studying in a Business School. The module aims to develop in students a critical awareness of their own developmental needs and develop and enhance skills relating to searching and sorting.

  • Introduction to Financial Accounting

    The aim of this module is to introduce students to the core systems and techniques required by businesses to produce financial statements, and to the core concepts underpinning these statements.

Topics covered include the role of banks, services corporate banks provide, working capital management, international banking services, structured finance, IPO services and merger acquisition process.

  • Intermediate Macroeconomics

    This module builds on and applies what was learned in Introduction to Economics. In macroeconomics, the way the economy behaves at a country level is explained and what the government and other policy authorities (such as the Central Bank) can do to influence it. This module will use the main economic concepts, such as output, unemployment, inflation, consumption, and investment to study the dynamics of an economy at a more advanced level. You will use the knowledge acquired in Year One to examine the short-run and long-run effects of price changes on employment, output and other key macroeconomic variables. Further, you will have the opportunity to study how policy changes in one sector of the economy may affect the rest of the macroeconomy (intentionally or not).

We will consider other qualifications for a pre-result unconditional offer providing that you have an appropriate proven performance at GCSE (or equivalent) level and predicted grades in line with grades that we expect to see at A-level. Other qualifications that we may consider for a pre-result unconditional offer include: the International Baccalaureate Diploma, BTEC Level 3 qualifications, Cambridge Pre-U and combinations of qualifications (e.g. BTECS plus A-levels).

An unconditional offer is what it says it is. So if you don’t meet your predictions then your place at Coventry is still guaranteed. However we would hope and expect that you continue to work hard to make the most of your potential and be best prepared to study at university level.

We can’t but our experience over the years has shown us that students like you with a track record of high grades and excellent predictions are very likely to achieve those grades. Our assessment takes into account all elements of your application to allow us to take a holistic view of your potential. There is still the opportunity to gain one of the Coventry University Scholarships if you achieve the required grades so there is a financial incentive to aim high. Unconditional offers are only made to individuals who have demonstrated their commitment so we believe their focus and determination is unlikely to waver in the final stages of their qualifications.

No, the unconditional offer is only available to those who will take up their place in 2019.
