We offer two study options. You can choose three years full-time or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement between years two and three that will give you the chance to apply what you’ve learned to real-life situations In your final year, you can tailor your course to specialist areas including auditing, taxation, behavioural economics and finance and the economics of labour markets. The degree is accredited by ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW, which means you’ll gain exemptions from certain professional qualifying exams.
