    Management Programme is

    a s u p p o r t e d o p e n

    l e a r n i n g p r o g r a m m e

    offering undergraduate

    degrees from HWU. Four

    HWMP Degrees are offered

    at B&B. These are the BA

    in Business Administration,

    Accountancy & Finance,

    Business & Finance and

    Management & Psychology.

    Each degree option is struc-tured in three progressive

    stages, with each stage com-

    prising four common

    streams called module sets.

    Module sets are comprised

    of either a) two linked sub-

    jects covering a particular

    topic that is worth a total of30 credits, or b) Two stand

    -alone subjects that are

    worth 15 credits each. Stu-

    dents are required to com-

    plete two of these stand-

    alone subjects to gain the

    30 credits required for the

    completion of a module set.

    Students who have achieved

    360 credits over the periodof study are awarded the

    degree. For all degree op-

    tions, students may choose

    any combination of mod-

    ules in a stage and between

    stages, providing that the

    pre-requisites for that par-

    ticular module are met

    (there are no pre-requisites

    for Stage I). As such, it is

    possible to do as little as

    one and as much as four

    (the maximum allowable)

    modules in any one year.

    Exemptions can be offered

    for modules based on the

    submissions to HWU of thetertiary-level qualifications

    held and an assessment by

    that body. However, the

    total number of exemptions

    granted is limited to a maxi-

    Heriot-Watt University Student Testimonials

    Natalie Jones,


    I chose the Heriot Watt

    University programme based on

    three criteria: flexibility, popularity

    and range of programmes available. I

    liked that this programme did not

    require me to submit periodic as-

    signments, only self-study and ex-

    aminations as frequently as my work

    schedule would permit. Good pro-

    gramme, great flexibility, with online

    and electronic study resources to

    help me along the way.

    Alfred Okot Okidi,


    I have found the Heriot

    Watt programme to be unique, prac-

    tical, relevant and so enriching.The programme was quite taxing, as

    I had to blend my reading with a

    demanding work schedule. The

    beauty of the programme to me was

    in the flexibility of the course and

    concise course materials presented in

    stimulating language. I treasure the

    programme more than all my earlier

    qualifications and courses.

    Jason Julien,

    Trinidad & Tobago

    The HWU experience far exceeded

    my expectations. The quality of

    the teaching materials was first-class, as they were well written and

    effectively communicated the com-

    plex concepts. In addition to pre-

    senting theory and practice, the au-

    thors fostered critical thinking with

    their narrative. I highly recommend

    HWU for anyone seeking to equip

    themselves for the challenges of

    todays competitive world.

    Completing this Programme has truly made me proud of myself. For all my accomplishments so far I think this is the one that tops

    them all. I always dreamed of obtaining a tertiary education and Im happy I did it when I did. It has certainly made a positive change in

    my life and I m excited to take my career to the next level. GraduateBA in Accountancy and Finance - T&T

    Psychology studies and analyses human functions and behaviour so as to predict and shape actions. A large part of manage-ment science is about guiding and shaping our people assets to produce the desired behaviours. The marriage of the two

    areas in theBA in Management and Psychology is then a perfect complement that gives you knowledge of a wide rangeof the issues that affect a business environment and how you can develop and implement the right action plans for success

    within that environment. Graduates will be well-prepared for careers in business management, teaching, counselling, nurs-ing, social work, probation work and market research, as well as careers within the psychology profession itself.

    Class Structure and Schedule

    Lectures in the available degree options will be held on weekdays during the daytime be-tween the hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and in the evenings between the hours of 5:30 pm to8:30 pm. Lectures will also be held on Sundays (depending on the number of registrations)

    between 9:00 am-4:00 pm. The lectures will focus on the review, discussion and practicalapplication of key concepts and material. This learning style is designed to deepen the

    knowledge of an area by encouraging a critical-thinking approach revolving around an un-derstandingof the material, rather than a detailed rote-learning regurgitation of the sylla-bus. The lectures would be followed by a tutorial at the start of each month (weekly for the

    day programme). This will be focused on solving problems relatedto the issues covered in the lectures for the preceding month. Abreakdown of the allocated times is shown below:

    Classes scheduled to enhance learning experience.

    Review classes in a particular subject will be held once every two

    weeks. Students have enough time to review material and prepare

    for new topics, which deepens the benefits gained from the classdiscussions..The classes will focus on the review, discussion and

    practical application of key concepts and material. This learning

    style is designed to deepen the knowledge of an area by encouraging

    a critical-thinking approach revolving around an understanding

    of the material, rather than a detailed rote-learning regurgitation

    of the syllabus....
