As the accounting and financial reporting world becomes more globalised, this course concentrates on the developing international standards adopted by the key trading blocks. You will learn about the international reporting practices adopted by every company listed on a stock exchange within the EU and many companies further afield. We encourage you to recognise how financial information makes a contribution to society, and to consider where it might cause or inflate societal problems. We have close links with the accountancy profession, on a local, national and international level and across organisations of all sizes. You’ll benefit from the experience of practicing accountants, many of whom are graduates of our degree. Our Accountancy degree offers one of the most comprehensive and extensive list of accreditations in the UK. It is fully accredited by ICAS, ACCA, AIA and Chartered Accountants Ireland. It also carries part accreditation from CIMA, ICAEW and CIPFA. Many students do an internship with an accountancy firm during their holidays, combining their study with work experience. You will be able to interact directly with employers.

Modules

Level 1 These modules give you an insight into the business world in which accounting operates. Core skills are developed to equip your interaction with commercial enterprises and society beyond business. Level 2 The concepts of earlier modules will be more fully developed. At this stage you’ll be encouraged to do your own critical thinking, essential in gaining a good Honours degree classification. This is also the year in which you’ll have the opportunity of travelling overseas to study with one of our partner institutions. Level 3 Level three comprises the junior Honours subjects. In the first three years of the BAcc degree all students undertake the same modules. Those who have elected to study a language will begin these studies in this year. Level 4 At this stage you can choose from a range of senior Honours modules. By now you’ll be able to recognise your strengths and tailor your final year to best suit your specific interests in line with your career ambitions.
