WHY STUDY AUDIT 3X (AUE3761) THROUGH US?
ABOUT THE COURSE
The AUE3761 course basically covers the full audit process. We go back to the same principles of the audit process that you studied in AUE2601, and then go into extra detail and teach you how to analyse more complex situations, so you will be able to apply the principles you have already learned to case studies.
There is a big section on evidence. It’s one topic, but it’s a BIG one, with lots of sub-sections. It teaches you what you can and can’t use as ‘proof’ for your audit opinion, and how to obtain it. There are quite a few ISA (International Standards of Auditing) chapters in there, so students tend to memorise these, but we spend some time explaining them so that you understand them and can easily work with them in questions.
After you’ve gathered your evidence, you need to go through it all and assess whether you have enough (evaluation of evidence) and make a conclusion about what this evidence tells you about the financial statements (i.e. your audit opinion).
Our lectures and exam technique videos are aimed at helping you with your understanding of this module and how to communicate your point, to help you get through this module, and prepare you for CTA. We’ve gone through two past exams, showing you how to read, plan and answer your questions.
Your lecturer will keep an eye on you throughout the semester, motivate you, push you, and answer any questions you have about the module.
