Accountancy can trace its history back to the beginnings of civilisation.

Fundamental to planning and forecasting, budgeting and control, taxation and decision making, competent and resourceful accountants are essential to success in business and commerce. The University of Bolton's BA (Hons) in Accountancy with foundation year is designed to give you the strong academic and vocational background needed for a professional career in accountancy. The initial foundation year offers you an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of accounting and helps prepare you for degree-level study.

We’ll guide you as you explore the two key areas of management accounting and financial accounting and reporting. You’ll also be able to choose from several optional modules in your final year, which include (amongst others) taxation and audit.
