Students as Professionals

Susan Smith and Mark Fisher, University of Sussex

As a pilot study with a group of students on a third year optional audit module, we undertook a pilot designed to help students make the link between the professional environment and the classroom. The students became active by taking on the role of professionals performing an audit as part of the formative assignment. This group assignment involved a variety of steps including interpreting the brief, visiting the client site, interacting with client personnel to obtain information, and preparing and presenting a report to management. The audit complemented the module which involved a series of group case studies designed to encourage students to apply their theoretical knowledge. The experience provided a range of opportunities to develop employability skills in a ‘real life’ environment which cannot be fully reproduced in a class situation.
