Course summary

You can fast-track your accounting career with our BSc Accountancy Flying Start degree. It's been developed in partnership with ICAEW and PwC, where you’ll spend three to four months on paid work placement in your second, third and fourth years, assisting on real client work. You’ll get a solid grounding in fundamental disciplines including business finance, financial and management accounting, and business law. In addition, many of the modules you will study carry accreditation towards the ACA accountancy qualification. You can follow your individual interests and career aspirations by selecting from optional modules alongside your core subjects. You could choose from areas such as entrepreneurship, risk management and corporate governance.

Course details


Your first year will cover financial and management accounting, assurance, principles of taxation, business law, principles of economics, quantitative methods and business computing. You will also find out where you will be placed with PwC in year two onwards. After a study block in early September on audit and assurance, you will spend September to December on placement with PwC. You will assist on real client work, applying the knowledge you have learnt earlier in the course. Returning to your studies in January, you will take modules on tax compliance, financial accounting and reporting, and corporate finance. You will start year three by undertaking another block of study in early September on financial accounting and reporting. Following this, you will spend September to December on placement, where you will take on more complex work before returning to your studies in January. Starting your final year in late September, you will study contemporary issues in accounting, also choosing from a range of optional modules. Your studies at the university will conclude in early February and you will then undertake the Professional Practice module during your final placement, ending in May. After the course, if you have performed strongly, you could be offered a full-time role at PwC.
