As you can read on the other posts, yes, we’re halfway the first term! It’s been busy, very busy, but challenging and motivating too. We started with Accounting, Health Informatics and Marketing. Accounting is probably the toughest subject for those who, like me, have never studied anything related to economics or finance. But, even if you have to work hard to be up to date, the teaching system is well designed so that at the end of the course you feel that you have really made the most of it.
So we’ve worked a lot! Individually but also in syndicate groups.
After spending the entire (and I mean ENTIRE) night with my syndicate team to complete an assignment for our accounting class, I’m probably a little too tired to be writing anything coherent right now – but the fact that I’m actually free at the moment makes me feel like I MUST write!! I’ve got to introduce you to the people I spend an unreasonable amount of time with to achieve…*ahem*…. great things for the future!! You will see.
In the MSc programme, each student is assigned to a “syndicate team” (decided by the school), a group of people you work with on all assignments (except, perhaps a couple) throughout the semester.
