This is a four-year programme that includes a year of foundational study and leads directly into the degree course. Our foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence, before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. 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. 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. We offer this programme with two study options. You can choose four years full-time or five years full-time which would include a one-year professional placement before your final year that will give you hands-on experience in a real-life working environment. This sandwich year would give you practical skills that many employers seek, giving you a competitive edge upon graduation.
