ACCG1000 will be delivered through a series of Online Lectures which are followed by a weekly 1 hour tutorial. Students may choose to enrol in either a face-to-face on campus tutorial or Online/Zoom tutorial. Attendance will be taken at these sessions and student participation is strongly encouraged. In the event that you feel unwell, please do not attend on campus tutorials and contact your tutor to make alternative arrangements.
Class arrangements may differ at short notice on grounds of health and safety should teaching staff feel unwell. Actively check iLearn prior to your sessions for latest updates.
Weekly pre-recorded lectures will be available on iLearn.
Tutorials begin in Week 1 and all subsequent tutorials will be based upon previous week's Lecture topic. Students are expected to watch Online Lectures and attempt tutorial exercises prior to attending weekly tutorials.
