NUI Galway Introduce “Accounting Nuggets” Online Tutorials

The Discipline of Accounting and Finance in the J.E. Cairnes School of Business & Economics at NUI Galway has recently launched “Accounting Nuggets”, a series of online tutorials for Leaving Cert Accounting students. The Explore funded project is a student-staff collaboration where a series of step-by-step guided online tutorials have been created to support students with bite-sized chunks of the Leaving Certificate Accounting syllabus. Team members consisted of lecturers Mary Barrett and Riona Lyons, Bachelor of Commerce students Rita Breen and Sarah Kelly, Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) students Patric Evason, Natasha Caulfield, Michael Loftus and Kelley Hession and Masters of Accounting student Owen Wyer.  The project team consulted with leaving cert students and secondary school teachers to select topics that students found most difficult at leaving cert level.

 The online tutorials are an ideal support for anyone studying accounting for their Leaving Cert and can be accessed from the NUI Galway website at the following link  The website also provides information on the career paths of many of our accounting graduates.
