A WORD OF WELCOME
We have pleasure in welcoming you to this module in Financial Management and hope that you will
find it both interesting and rewarding. For our part, we will do our best to assist you with any
academically related queries you may have. You will be well on your way to success if you start
studying early in the semester/year and resolve to do the assignment(s) properly.
You will receive a number of tutorial letters during the year. A tutorial letter is our way of
communicating with you about teaching, learning and assessment.
Please read all the tutorial
you receive during the semester
immediately and carefully
as they always contain important
and, sometimes, urgent information. Tutorial Letter 101 (this one) contains important information about
the scheme of work, resources and assignments for this module. We urge you to read it carefully and
to keep it at hand when working through the study material, completing the assignments, preparing for
the examination and directing questions to your lecturers.
Please read Tutorial Letter 301 in combination with Tutorial Letter 101, as together they give you
important information about studying via distance education through a particular college.
This tutorial letter contains the assignments and assessment criteria, as well as instructions for
completing and submitting the assignments. It also provides all the information you need with regard to
the prescribed study material and other resources and how to obtain them. Please study this
information carefully and make sure that you obtain the prescribed material as soon as possible.
We have also included certain general and administrative information about this module. Please study
this section of the tutorial letter carefully.
