Accountancy is the process by which financial information about a business is recorded, classified, summarised, interpreted and communicated. A major benefit at Glasgow is our use of external tutors. These professional accountants will lead tutorials, offering you the opportunity to discuss issues and learn from their experience.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
