OVERVIEW Every business needs to get to grips with accounting and finance. That means completing a full degree in this field will open up a range of career opportunities. The full course combines accountancy and finance with business disciplines. It gives you the management skills you need to get ahead while developing your head for figures. Our full degree course has been designed to cover many areas required by professional bodies. This means you could be exempt from many of the chartered accountancy exams and could qualify as a chartered accountant more quickly once you graduate. You’ll also develop a range of transferable skills that employers around the world are looking for and that put you on track to start your own accountancy business. The Foundation Year is designed to prepare you for studying our Accounting and Finance degree and will help you develop the skills and knowledge you need, even if you don’t currently meet the academic requirements. Once you’ve passed, you’ll be ready to start your degree course. That means your degree will take four years, or five years if it includes a work placement or year studying abroad.
