Course summary

TEF Silver

Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Our Accounting and Economics course gives you a great combination of academic study and a strong vocational emphasis. In the first two years you will get a broad and solid grounding in core accounting and economics topics. In your final year, depending on your interests and career aspirations, you can then choose to:

  • focus more on one discipline or
  • maintain a balance of both or
  • include some modules in a new area such as finance.
In your second or final year you can experience working in a local charity by helping with basic accounting. This is part of our Accounting for Community: Engaging Students (ACES) project. By the end of the course you will have developed a broad range of valuable skills and attributes such as:
  • commercial awareness
  • an international perspective
  • an analytical approach to problem solving
  • the ability to communicate effectively and work collaboratively.
And you will be ready for a career in accountancy or economic policy, or to continue to study at masters level. You may also be interested in studying our Accounting and Finance course.
