Course summary

If you’re planning a career in accountancy or the financial sector, studying at the University of Stirling is the perfect starting point. Stirling ranks among the top 20 places to study Accountancy and Finance in the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022), boasting 5-star teaching and multiple industry accreditation. An accounting degree empowers you to prepare, present and interpret financial information for a wide range of organisations, and the skills you learn will enable investors, lenders, management and others to make key decisions based on financial facts. The ideal path to a career in accountancy combines a university degree with recognised professional qualifications. Our Accountancy programme has been created with this in mind, and successful completion of the course will ensure many professional bodies give you significant exemptions from their exams. From a basic understanding of how to prepare financial statements, through to an in-depth knowledge of auditing, taxation and reporting, our Accountancy degree covers everything you’ll need to know to join the thousands of Stirling graduates who have successfully transitioned from this course into the professional world. Business is at the heart of society and everyday life. Therefore, the importance of business and the opportunities that it presents are often self-evident. This degree in Business Law affords you a chance to study a range of subjects reflecting the importance of law in all areas of society and with an emphasis on looking at the law associated with business in the UK. The course enables you to understand in more depth how law interacts with society. You will 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 career you pursue. Although the LLB is the degree to pursue if you wish to join the legal profession, the BA degrees offers a strong in-depth knowledge of the law, enhancing many personal and intellectual skills to allow you to enter many different areas of employment. You will specialise in law but the University’s modular system allows you in addition to dip into other areas of study for your first two years such as languages, management, economics, criminology, psychology, politics, the environment and much more before concentrating on law honours modules in 3rd and 4th year. This gives our BA students the great advantage of a diverse and varied education and the ability to place legal studies in a wider social or business context.
