Our MAccFin (Hons) Accounting and Finance course is suited to students looking to gain a high level of specialist accounting and finance knowledge. You will be taught financial and management accounting, auditing, taxation, corporate finance and financial management in a four-year integrated Masters that provides an additional level of training above the standard three-year BA. The degree combines three years of undergraduate study with one year of postgraduate, so you’ll enrol on an undergraduate course, but graduate with a Masters degree that provides a direct route into professional accountancy. You will achieve an in-depth understanding of the current issues in accounting and finance including regulation, framework, and measurement at both national and international levels. The course takes an interdisciplinary and analytical approach that incorporates interactive and problem-based teaching, rooted in contemporary case studies. As a result, you'll graduate with the skills and knowledge to thrive in an accounting environment. The MAccFin (Hons) Accounting and Finance course is accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), CPA Australia and Association of International Accounts (AIA).
