Our BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance programme is officially accredited by the ACCA (The Chartered Association of Certified Accountants). Students will be eligible for exemption from eight of the nine professional bodies exams. This course is designed to help you develop into a highly effective financial manager by enhancing skills such as business awareness and problem solving along with the ability to apply these to a accountancy environment. Students are able to put their theoretical knowledge into practice through undertaking industry led projects, ensuring readiness for the world of accountancy after the completion of their degree.
The first year of your studies will introduce you to a broad range of management subjects. Typically you will be studying four modules a semester over the two semesters that make up our academic year. The pattern of your study in the second year is similar to that of the first but you will be studying more focused accounting and finance subjects including Financial Reporting, Financial Management, Taxation, and Management Accounting. In addition, in each semester you will be able to select an option module of your choice from a selection that are made available each year. In your final year with us you will study Advance Financial Accounting and Corporate Finance and in addition you will work on your Management Project. The Management Project allows you to study in depth an accounting and finance topic of your choice and, being in the region of 10,500 words, will be the single largest piece of work that you complete on the course.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
