You will study topics such as asset pricing, corporate finance, financial management, financial reporting, auditing, international finance, management accounting and taxation, as well as other units offered within the school. In the first year you will gain skills across the core disciplines of accounting, economics, finance and mathematics before pursuing more specialised units as your interests develop. In your second and final years you will learn more advanced theory and techniques and will study financial accounting, management accounting and finance in more depth. We will teach you how to analyse data from quantitative models, and you will choose several options from a range of units, some of which may contribute to exemptions from professional examinations. If you wish to extend your degree to four years you may do so with a professional placement or a year studying abroad in English during your third year. To take advantage of one of these opportunities apply to BSc Accounting and Finance and then request to be considered for:

  • BSc Accounting and Finance with Professional Placement
  • BSc Accounting and Finance with Study Abroad (for study in English)
Places are allocated on merit depending on first-year examination results.
