Course summary

One of only a few courses in London that’s accredited by five accountancy bodies. The course provides exam exemptions from ACCA, ICAEW, CIMA, AIA and CPA Australia (provided you select the appropriate option modules) and will fast-track you on a path to becoming a qualified accountant. The qualification will open up a career in virtually any business or organisation in the private, public or voluntary sectors. It will also enable you to gain employment in the financial services industry because it provides a thorough overview of financial markets, financial reporting requirements and the regulatory framework of accounting. You’ll receive a solid grounding in the main accounting disciplines and will study part of the course at our financial centre in iconic Canary Wharf. In addition to your academic studies, the course has a strong emphasis on the world of work.
