Course summary

The foundation year offers an innovative new pathway into your degree. It is the first part of a four-year degree programme. It provides an alternative route for those unable to meet the traditional entry requirements for a three-year degree. It will prepare you for your degree studies in a supportive and stimulating learning environment. You will begin with an exploration of education and society. Over the course of the year, you will build the skills and experience to prepare you for your chosen degree. You apply via UCAS for the Accounting and Finance (with Foundation Year) course and after successfully completing the first year you will progress onto the final three years of the degree. The BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance programme aims to:

  • Acquire and develop the practical skills essential within an accounting and financial environment
  • Develop and enhance transferable skills relevant to a range of employment opportunities in both private and public sector organisations including the third sector
  • Enable you to develop competence in accounting and finance, alongside wisdom in its application sufficient for you to enhance your employability and possibly progress to postgraduate study
