This course is designed to increase student literacy of contemporary issues, especially in subjects related to business, science, and technology.

Learning topics also include reading strategies, expository writing skills, and presentation skills. Coursework includes reflective writing on assigned readings, summary report writing, and presentation

Advisory: For Year 2 students of the Financial Technology Programme only.
