In addition to two mandatory subjects, students must choose two subjects from electives. These elective subjects give students greater choice and the option to specialise in practice or industry. Professional 2 subjects will be examined through open book and case study based exams. This allows for more open style questions, which will require students to demonstrate their ability to think strategically. So that students take the maximum advantage of the tuition available to them, we strongly recommend that the papers at P2 are taken on a modular basis. P2 subjects may be taken in any order and all must be passed within four consecutive sittings of the first sitting. This ensures that you can structure both study and final examinations according to what suits you best.
