Accounting and finance go together like money and banks. And studying them side-by-side will give you the skills and experience to work in areas such as professional accountancy, investment banking and financial management. At Leicester, you will develop strong familiarity with the professional worlds of accounting and finance, and you’ll benefit from being among the first to study at our new £16 million Brookfield campus, with facilities exclusive to our School of Business students. Our BSc in Accounting and Finance will provide you with a solid foundation and technical skills in accounting and finance. We will help you to develop quantitative, communications and information technology skills and the ability to apply these skills in an accounting and finance context. You will learn how managers, shareholders and other stakeholders make decisions in organisations. Our accounting degrees offer you the opportunity to gain exemptions from the accounting and management accounting professional bodies, ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW and ICAS, dependent on satisfactory completion of certain modules. We will prepare you for a career or further training opportunities in the accounting and finance professions - in the public and private sectors or in voluntary organisations. An optional year studying abroad or undertaking an industry placement will enhance your skills and build your professional network. If you are interested in postgraduate study, this course will prepare you for the increasingly independent aspects of further study and research. The first year of this degree is shared with the Accounting BSc, which means you will have the option to switch to this degree at the end of your first year.
