Thinking of becoming an accountant? Or looking to develop your finance and business knowledge? Northumbria University’s BSc (Hons) Accounting course is about more than just numbers, it gives you fresh insights and a deeper understanding of financial information. And it’s your starting block for building a rewarding career. Complementing modules that combine key accounting theory with problem-based learning around real-world scenarios, the course offers an optional, year-long placement between your second and final years. It’s an opportunity well worth taking up to give your CV the edge with valuable experience – whether you’re interested in a training contract or role in industry accounting. And depending on the nature of the placement, this may count as the practice element you’ll need for full membership of the highly respected Association of Accounting Technicians. If it is the chartered accountant route that appeals, you’ll need to satisfy the requirements of professional accounting bodies. So we’ve designed our Accounting course with this in mind. Currently, our BSc (Hons) offers 42 individual exemptions across six of the world’s largest professional bodies. These mean you’ll be able to enter the job market with a good number of your professional qualifications already behind you. Northumbria University’s Accounting course is covered by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation for Newcastle Business School.
