There is a growing awareness of the need to develop a broad range of competencies in accounting undergraduates. In recognition of this, Thames Valley University developed an accounting biased Personal Skills Development (PSD) module to run alongside the first year introductory module in accounting. This note summarises the characteristics of the PSD module and some of the students views on its effectiveness. It also briefly looks at the possible impact of taking the PSD module on students performance in the introductory module in accounting.
