Company law in context

1.4 Law, skills and learning outcomes

This course has a number of learning outcomes. In relation to a course of study, a learning outcome is simply something which you should be able to do (and to show that you can do) at the end of studying a particular course. The learning outcomes are concerned with ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of company law, and also ability to demonstrate a range of skills, including use of IT, research and problem-solving.

In addition to being listed at the beginning of the course, the learning outcomes for Parts A and B are set out at the start of each section. There is an opportunity at the end of each part to review the learning outcomes and reflect on how well you think you achieved them. It should therefore always be clear to you what this course is helping you to achieve.
