This course in accounting and finance at the University of West London will help you gain both knowledge and practical experience. You will learn from professional accountants who will support your academic and career goals, equipping you to compete in the financial jobs market. The course is designed to maximise exemptions from the exams set by professional accountancy bodies such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). This means you will sit fewer ACCA exams and you could shorten the length of time it takes you to gain your professional qualification. On this Accounting and Finance course you will learn essential principles while developing the practical skills you need to succeed. Our professionally qualified tutors all have industry experience, most of them with the Big Four accounting firms; with their guidance you will grow your understanding of current practices. As a team, we do everything we can for our students, but do not take our word for it. Since the student satisfaction ratings were first introduced, this course has frequently featured in the top ten accounting degrees in the country. Alongside your specific professional abilities, we will encourage you to develop the transferable skills that will help you to stand out to potential employers. These include analytical, research and communication skills. All our teaching staff pride themselves on putting students first, and you will always have academic support when you need it. Your tutors will work with you as an individual to make the most of your career opportunities. You will listen, learn, discuss and gain hands-on experience of how business and finance work through:

  • lectures
  • seminars
  • tutorials
  • workshops.
When you graduate, provided you have passed specific accredited optional modules at Level 6, you will be awarded up to nine exemptions from ACCA* and it is possible to become an ACCA-qualified accountant within two years of graduation. *Eligibility for the ACCA exemptions would be conditional upon attempting and passing the relevant Level 5 plus Level 6 modules at UWL. The foundation year course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to continue onto your Honours degree. You will study a range of subjects that will underpin your future study and also gain valuable experience of university life, with full access to campus facilities. Successful completion of the year allows you to progress straight onto Level 4 of this course.
