Course summary

​The BA (Hons) Accounting and Economics degree at Cardiff Met has a strong emphasis on application and critical understanding. The course is professionally accredited by the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants, Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, so that students may obtain a number of exemptions from these bodies’ professional examinations and was also the first new university to adopt the new CORE curriculum in Economics. Students selecting the sandwich option undertake a yearlong work placement between their second and third years of study. In addition, we have an ongoing strategic partnership with Graham Paul Chartered Accountants, which provides paid 12-week summer placements for a number of Cardiff Met students, with a view to offering permanent graduate training contracts. Our Economics tutors work with organisations such as the Government Economic Service to ensure our curriculum is cutting edge and relevant.
