Accountancy is a vital function in business, fulfilling a significant role in business development and profitability. The Professional Accounting with Foundation Year BA (Hons) course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in accounting and finance. The strength of the course lies in preparing students, who are unable to follow the more traditional route onto a degree course in Professional Accounting. The ability to produce quality financial data is integral to strategic decision-making and could ultimately be the reason a business thrives or dissolves. Consequently, studying accountancy and finance can lead to an exciting career in a variety of organisations from public sector to private sector as well as charities. The foundation year aims to provide the fundamental knowledge and skill set in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concept involved in investment risk and professional ethics. Students who successfully complete their foundation year will then progress onto the Professional Accounting with BA (Hons). At CU Coventry, we aim to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skillset to help you get into the accounting profession. Alongside your learning, as part of your degree in Professional Accounting with BA (Hons), you will also have the chance to conduct critical research with our experienced staff, learn from guest visitors and take part in practical modules.
