Course summary

Accountancy – a qualification you can count on Studying the Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc) course you will learn that accounting concerns the preparation, presentation and interpretation of financial information to enable investors, lenders, management, employees, government and others to make effective decisions. Accountants are required to register and pass examinations of a recognised professional accountancy body. Having our degree behind you will take you some way to achieving this, as you will gain significant exam exemptions from your chosen professional body’s scheme, allowing you to work at an advanced level earlier. We follow our students’ progress from Year 1 to graduation and aim to enhance their learning experience by offering social events throughout their study which include presentations from professional bodies. The employability of our students is a particular priority to us and one of our Year 3 modules, Accounting Information and Employment, has a particular focus on this. We have a focused involvement from professional accounting bodies, including ACCA and CIMA. A Year 4 optional module reflects the research interests of our staff and includes such diverse areas as sustainability, corporate governance and international finance. During the degree, students participate in a personal and professional development module with a focus on developing key skills that employers are looking for, as well as helping students prepare for, and make the effective transition into the workplace. What are the advantages of studying law as a BA? Firstly, it means you develop even further the intellectual skills needed for what is a demanding yet rewarding subject. These include autonomy, determination, intellectual curiosity, clear thinking and concise expression. All are highly valuable, whatever profession you pursue.

For example, our Business Law BA enables you to develop a thorough understanding of the way law and regulation shape and influence the business world.
