Accountants are indispensable to every business; without them, a company would not know whether it was making a profit or a loss. But there’s so much more to modern accountancy than just balancing the books. Accountants are also seen as business advisers, providing strategic financial guidance to senior executives. Our Accounting and Finance course provides an excellent path to many varied professional careers in areas such as banking, insurance, financial services, general management and the not-for-profit sector. This hugely rewarding and highly useful programme develops your technical knowledge and professional skills and has been designed to give you a systematic understanding of current issues in accounting. You learn how to produce accounting information and deploy strategic advice. Learning and teaching takes place in small class sizes to prepare you to work in management teams, and modules focus on applying theory to real business scenarios. In Year 1, you are introduced to core modules in accounting, finance, management and economics. In addition, you gain a thorough understanding of business law, ethics and governance. In Years 2 and 3, you focus on more specialised study. You develop transferable skills in business and personal taxation, international financial reporting and strategic performance management. You then choose from a range of optional modules in Year 3 that focus on either advanced financial accounting, managing people and organisations or investments. You are taught by academics with professional experience as accountants, who support your personal development and help kick-start rewarding and fulfilling careers in multiple fields. Throughout the course, you develop a range of transferable abilities and professional practice skills highly prized by employers. These include critical evaluation, self-direction and problem-solving, as well as a sound grasp of analysis, presentations and negotiation techniques. Three or six-month work placements can be taken during the course. A number of our graduates take up well-paid trainee positions with large accounting firms such as Deloitte and PriceWaterhouseCoopers. Others enter a wide range of business careers. Alternatively, you could study for an extra year and graduate with a masters degree in accounting.
