There have been a number of recent changes announced by Oxford Brookes University. Please see below for full details:
CHANGES TO THE RESEARCH REPORT
New for 2016 and on-going:
Topics 8 and 15 new requirements: May 2016 (Period 32) and November 2016 (Period 33)
All students submitting a project on topic 8 or topic 15 in either May 2016 or November 2016 MUST use sector specific organizations, based on the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB).
These sectors are: Airlines Pharmaceuticals and Biotechnology Mobile telecommunications
These sectors will apply to students submitting for the first time or for students changing topic in both the May 2016 (Period 32) and November 2016 (Period 33). Sectors for future periods will be released on 1st December each year and will cover the following two submission periods. The main focus of your project research must be an analysis / evaluation of the project topic area issues in the context of your chosen organization.
CHANGES TO THE SLS
New for 2016 and on-going:
SLS new requirements: November 2016 (Period 33) onwards
The assessment is changing and students will be required to write a 2000 word critical reflection ‘what you have learned from undertaking the Research and Analysis Project’ supported by personal examples. This change will take effect from November 2016 (Period 33 onwards) and NOT as originally planned in May 2016.
Here is a reminder of the following changes which have been in place since Period 31 submission (Nov 2015)
CHANGES TO ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
Students must have met all the eligibility criteria at least two months prior to the start of the submission period in which the student is seeking to submit. (In practice, this means that students who have sat the last of their F papers in the March ACCA exam session – and who subsequently pass them – will NOT be eligible to submit a RAP in the May submission period of that same year AND students who have sat the last of their F papers in the September ACCA exam session – and who subsequently pass them – will NOT be eligible to submit a RAP in the November submission period of that same year.)
CHANGES TO MENTOR REQUIREMENTS
All students must use a Registered Mentor who has successfully completed the online mentoring course and who is registered with Oxford Brookes University to mentor BSc in Applied Accounting students. This will apply to students in the following categories:
- First time submissions
- students re-submitting who have changed their mentor since their previous submission
Students who are resubmitting and who submitted prior to the requirement for having a registered mentor and who have NOT changed their mentor will be able to use their previous mentor’s details.
Mentors are NOT permitted to act as mentors if they intend to submit a Research & Analysis project to the University either in the current submission period or in a future submission period.
